The first representative survey on nature awareness of young people in Germany is available. The survey commissioned by the Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMU) and the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN) was conducted in early summer and autumn 2020, and published in April 2021. The study focuses, among other things, on the relationship of youths to nature in times of the pandemic, participation in demonstrations and willingness to act for nature and biodiversity, as well as attitudes towards agro-genetic engineering, energy transition and digitalisation.
