Young Europeans more likely to quit driving and have fewer children to save planet

They are willing to have smaller families, stop using cars and – albeit in smaller numbers – go vegan for the planet, but abandoning single-use plastics and growing a few more plants could be a step too far. Across Europe, according to a seven-country survey, it seems young people are more willing than older generations to make big lifestyle changes that would help combat the climate crisis – but are less convinced by smaller gestures. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2023/oct/25/young-europeans-quit-driving-fewer-children-save-planet-climate-crisis

      Instead of quitting driving they should embrace the Evs transition and set more concrete solutions to curb the climate change.

        I also think that this is not a sustainable solution.. the European youths should come up with a more efficient solution

            It is encouraging to see that young Europeans are aware of the impact of their lifestyle choices on the environment and are willing to make significant changes to combat the climate crisis. However, it is important to remember that small gestures, such as reducing single-use plastics and growing plants, can also make a difference in the long run. It is important for all generations to take responsibility and make changes to create a sustainable future for our planet.

                    This is a bold step, but it's a good thing as long as they are determined in what they are doing.

                      Young Europeans are demonstrating a strong willingness to make significant lifestyle changes, such as having smaller families and reducing car use, in their efforts to combat the climate crisis. However, they appear to be less enthusiastic about smaller gestures like eliminating single-use plastics and increasing plant growth. This generational trend highlights a growing awareness of the environmental challenges we face and a commitment to impactful actions for the planet's future. 🌍🌱 #ClimateChange #YouthActivism

                        going vegan for the planet and abandoning single use plastics makes more sense to having fewer children though
