Protested Publicly to Make a Difference on Issues
By Generation, Average of 27 Countries, 2020
Issues engagement and demographics both suggest that we are increasingly moving into an age of activism, where younger generations are more likely to use their voices to affect change. Fifteen percent of those belonging to Gen Z say they have protested publicly at events and rallies in the past year to make a difference on an economic, environmental, social, or political issue that they care about. People in Africa and Latin America, both continents with relatively more youthful populations, are more likely to say they have attended a protest than those living in other regions.
