The optimism expressed by young people aged 13 to 29 in a new poll from the PBS NewsHour and Generation Lab comes even as many of them point to the multiple ways they believe climate change will affect their personal lives in the future.

Most people agree that news organisations and journalists should reflect all sides of an issue and not push a particular agenda – at least when asked about it in surveys. Our 2021 Digital News Report finds this to be true across countries and age groups.
