Rather than blaming other generations or cultures for the planet’s afflictions, they are ready to shoulder responsibility for creating achievable solutions. Eight in 10 of the millennials we surveyed in our latest global study don’t just believe it is their generation’s duty to change the world, they also believe they have the power to pull it off.
