Protecting forests and generating wind and solar energy are the most popular climate measures among young people. This is according to research conducted by the United Nations in the G20-countries.

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in collaboration with Oxford University, conducted a survey of 689,000 people, including more than 302,000 people under the age of 18.

Emergency situation

The survey, according to the UN, shows how public support for climate action is increasing in the near future as climate-conscious voting-age teens enter the labor market and gain influential positions. The new survey - called the G20 Peoples' Climate Vote - was released ahead of the G20 Rome Summit in Italy and the UN Climate Summit COP26. In all G20 countries surveyed, a majority of young people under the age of 18 state that they believe climate change is a global emergency. 'This new People's Climate Vote shows that, on average, 70 percent of young people in the G20 countries believe we are in an emergency situation,' said UNDP Summit Director Achim Steiner. 'As they are about to inherit this climate emergency, young people are sending a loud and clear message to world leaders: they want climate action now.'

Climate Policy

The most popular climate policies among young people under 18 in the G20-countries surveyed are the conservation of forests and land (59 percent), the use of renewable wind and solar energy, and the use of climate-friendly farming techniques (both 57 percent). Among adults, those measures score 3 to 4 percentage points worse. Young people are also more likely than adults to expect much from affordable insurance against the effects of extreme weather and from the use of electric cars and bicycles.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
