Study shows 76% of Gen Z believe it is their responsibility to take action on climate change

NEW YORK - Jan. 5, 2023 - PRLog -- New research from dcdx, in collaboration with WildAid, an international non-profit organization dedicated to protecting wildlife from the effects of climate change and more, highlights Generation Z's beliefs around climate change.

The research shows that more than 3/4 Gen Z'ers believe it is their responsibility to take action, but at the same time that they should not be responsible.

One Gen Z'er said, "The majority of the time, the environment doesn't feel like it should be a responsibility of our generation. So we're like, why do we have to deal with it?".

Yet according to the research, this belief in responsibility is contributing to more eco-anxiety, a prevalent negative force among Gen Z'ers that is preventing further action.

On top of this, Gen Z is riddled with beliefs of action insignificance, says the research. They believe their individual actions will not have an impact on the climate.
In fact, when asked why they thought their peers were not doing more to combat climate change, 53% said "they think their actions won't make an impact".
