It is widely believed that the young generation is very sensitive to the issue of ecology and climate change, which they consider one of the most pressing contemporary problems and actively participate in solving it. However, research shows that this is not entirely true, and young Poles are showing less and less enthusiasm for this issue.

According to the report "Ziemianie atakują" (Earthlings Attack), prepared by Kantar Polska, the European Climate Foundation, UN Global Compact Network Poland, and the Lata Dwudzieste agency, in the age group 18-24, 23 percent of the respondents agree with the statement that "Others are responsible for the ecological disaster, I'm not going to do anything about it." Moreover, this age group was also twice as likely as the general population to indicate that "it is already too late to prevent climate catastrophe."

“For people who are now entering adulthood, climate change is just one of many crises,” Mateusz Galica, co-founder of Lat Dwudzieste, said.

Research by this agency shows that young people are overwhelmed by current socio-economic problems, including inflation and rising cost of living, problems with the availability of housing, or jobs that provide decent pay without exploitation.
