From ambivalence to activism: Young people's environmental views and actions
by Emma Partridge
Youth Studies Australia, v.27, n.2, pp.18-25.
Do young people really take a particular interest in environmental issues, or are they apathetic? This paper considers what young people really think about the environment by drawing together and reviewing attitudinal polling and other research into young people's views. It seeks to challenge simplistic assumptions, and instead acknowledges the inherently complex nature of young people's attitudes to environmental problems.
