A new global survey illustrates the depth of anxiety many young people are feeling about climate change.

  • Nearly 60% of young people approached said they felt very worried or extremely worried.
  • More than 45% of those questioned said feelings about the climate affected their daily lives.
  • Three-quarters of them said they thought the future was frightening. Over half (56%) say they think humanity is doomed.
  • Two-thirds reported feeling sad, afraid and anxious. Many felt fear, anger, despair, grief and shame - as well as hope.
