Young climate advocates have been among America’s most active agents for change, but rarely have the perspectives of an entire generation been documented on what many see as the most consequential issue of their lifetimes.
On Tuesday, April 20, the Student Conservation Association will reveal the results of The SCA Climate Survey on Facebook Live. Although a wide majority of young people say climate change is real, opinions vary as to its cause.
Here’s an insider sneak peek at the results:
- Most believe there is still time to halt climate change, and we’ll examine why there is no consensus that we will.
- Young people still have many questions about climate, and we’ll probe them next week.
- More than 3-in-5 support the Biden Administration’s Civilian Climate Corps and even more hold common beliefs on environmental justice.
There is also evidence that the burdens of the year-plus pandemic are wearing on American youth and altering their views on climate change.
SCA CEO Stephanie Meeks and Board Chair Dr. Mamie Parker will be joined by active and alumni SCA members for the release of The SCA Climate Survey on Facebook Live Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. ET.
Help us amplify the voices of young people on climate and other critical environmental issues. Look for more details on SCA’s social channels as we approach April 20.
