THE Jack Petchey Foundation has launched their survey, The Jack Petchey Environmental Youth Survey, this month to find out what young people are specifically concerned about in their local environment, what they are already doing to positively impact it and what they – and their schools and clubs – need to be able to make a positive environmental impact. As an incentive, young people that complete the survey will be automatically entered into a prize draw of £200 for themselves and up to £500 for their club or school.
This survey comes a few short weeks after COP26, where young people’s voices were often missed in the discussions. Indeed, with such a keen focus on young people’s anxieties and fears for the future of the environment, very little research has been done into what young people think should be done to empower them to shape a better future for the environment.
The survey comprises four sections and takes around 10 minutes to complete. It is open to all young people age 11-25 from the London and Essex area.
Young people wishing to complete the survey should follow this link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/8FYJ2W8
Each young person that submits a survey will be entered into a prize draw of £200 from the Jack Petchey Foundation.
Schools and youth groups from London and Essex are encouraged to promote the survey to their members. If fifteen of an organisation’s members submit a completed survey, the group will be entered into a prize draw for a £500 grant prize.
The Jack Petchey Foundation will use this survey to explore the issues young people are facing to the media, decision makers and in their shaping of their own future programmes.
