Aug 20, 2020 | All Categories, Reports

The past several years have witnessed a dramatic increase in young people’s activism on climate change, accompanied by calls for society to act more aggressively to protect their futures. To better understand what young people think and feel about climate change, we surveyed American adolescents, asking what they know, feel and believe about the issue, what questions they have about it, and where they are obtaining their information. This report summarizes the results of the survey and is intended to support efforts to inform and educate American youth about climate change.
