On The Pulse: The Jack Petchey Environmental Youth Survey (2022)

Shortly after the UN Climate Change Conference in November 2021, we ran a youth survey asking young people across London and Essex their thoughts about environmental issues, experiences of environmental education and ideas for building a sustainable future. Almost 4,000 young people responded and told us young people and schools can be empowered to make a positive change and how youth funders can invest in the environment.

School Catch Up Survey (2021)

In 2021, the Jack Petchey Foundation hosted a series of digital meetings between young people, MPs and London Assembly members to discuss young people’s experience of lockdown and their hopes for the future.

From one of the discussions in these sessions, the Foundation put together a brief survey about what young people feel they have missed out on educationally since schools closed in March 2020 and how they can be better supported in the future. We hope that the results of this survey will feed into the formation of the UK Government’s Catch Up Premium and that young people’s thoughts, opinions and experiences will be taken into consideration.

Shaping Our Future: The Jack Petchey COVID-19 Youth Survey (2020)

In 2020 The Shaping Our Future Survey asked young people from London and Essex about their experiences of the lockdown and what they want to see for young people in the future.

Over 6,000 young people responded, showing how keen they are to have their voices heard. Click the button below to read about their experiences and how they want to build their future.
