🌐 This was confirmed by the fifth edition of the "Teengeist" survey by fischerAppelt and Appinio. According to the survey, 59 percent of teenagers think it is important to get involved in politics.
58 percent of those surveyed are not satisfied with the political system in Germany and its representatives. A full 63 percent even distrust politicians.
❕However, political engagement among German teenagers is still higher and dissatisfaction lower than among their peers from the USA and the UK.
The Teengeist series regularly looks into the "heads" of "Generation Z." The focus is on topics such as leisure time, media use, trends and politics. The answers of 1,000 young people from Germany, Great Britain, China and the USA are compared to see what differences there are.
🤳 According to a Statista survey, most teenagers use social media to inform themselves politically. On average, teenagers said they use these channels to inform themselves and exchange ideas on 3.7 days a week.
