Together with the research company Novus we asked 18-25 year olds in Sweden what their biggest challenges in life are today. The results revealed that the previous YOLO-generation of Swedish youth, was actually nurturing a deep concern about their own future. Housing shortage, unemployment and climate changes were the challenges that worried 18-25 year olds the most.
To decide which challenge to solve, we gathered the challenges and a report of the study, “Sveriges ungdomar om framtiden – Från YOLO till oro”, at lnu.se/yologenerationen. Here the public was encouraged to vote which challenge they wanted our Linneaus University task force of students and researchers to try and find a real solution for during the fall.
