        Climate change top concern

        for British teenagers

        Nearly two thirds (63%) of 11-18 year olds said the environment and
        climate change was one of their most important issues for the country in a
        new YouGov survey commissioned by the Eating Better Alliance.
          Eating Better (an alliance of over 60 health, animal welfare, environmental
        and farming organisations) commissioned the research to find out if eating
        habits were changing among teenagers in response to growing concerns
        around meat and climate change. The environment and climate change is
        ahead of the UK leaving the EU (54%) and healthcare (42%) as one of the
        top issues facing the country for 11 to 18 year olds.
          Simon Billing, Executive Director of Eating Better, said: “We should all
        pay close attention to the two thirds of teenagers surveyed who recognise
        climate change as the biggest issue at present. Their increased awareness
        will impact the way they eat, shop and vote.”
          The Eating Better alliance is calling for a 50% reduction from current levels
        of meat and dairy consumption in the UK by 2030, and for a transition to
        ‘better’ meat and dairy as standard.
