Millennials believe they can make a difference, study

July 15, 2013

A survey of 12,000 millennials (people aged 18-30) in 27 countries has revealed that youth today believe they can make a difference locally, but that they don’t always feel that difference can be made politically. 62% of respondents said they could make a local difference, while only 45% thought one person’s participation in politics can make a difference in one’s current system. The Telefónica Global Millennial Survey also found that millenials are concerned about the health of the economy and the planet. “They believe strongly in protecting personal freedoms and are tolerant of other religious beliefs.” Telefonica Report
