People are reportedly reluctant to adopt environmentally friendly lifestyle changes despite claiming to care more about damage to the natural environment than ever before. That is according to a survey from Natural England which showed younger people are most likely to adapt their behaviour, with 19 per cent of 16 – 24 years olds stating they intend to make lifestyle changes. A further 25 per cent stated they want to do more but don’t know how, or find it difficult. Compared to older age brackets, young respondents were more open-minded, according to the survey called Monitor of Engagement with the Natural Environment – The national survey on people and the natural environment. People aged over 65 were least likely to make changes with 31% saying they already do a lot to protect the environment and a further 39% saying they are happy with their current lifestyle and would not be likely to change it.
