Citizens of the Future: How young people perceive social problems from both local and global perspectives

Beata Krzywosz-Rynkiewicz , Anna Zalewska



The aim of this research is to find out how young people understand, identify sources of their knowledge and describe their reaction towards them. More precisely: How do young people understand the key social issues? Where does their knowledge come from? Does the level of optimism towards the key social issues seen from a local perspective depend on age, sex and ecological niche? 372 pupils aged between 11 and 17  underwent the test. Data was collected on their opinions, their optimism/pessimism, and their sources of information. The researchers used qualitative and quantitative methods, a rarely implemented triangulation method that helps to select key questions and relationships, as well as to explain their sources and mechanisms.
