Generations Cobayes – Evaluating aspirations of young people

The ultimate objective of Générations Cobayes is to raise awareness among young people about health and environmental issues, by giving them adequate information so they can choose wisely when it comes to food, cosmetic and other personal consumer products. Health and happiness should go hand in hand.

In 2016, 56 percent of the French population said they are happy. But what about youth? What drives them to move forward? Is money or a job for example something essential to their well-being? What about friendships, family, love? Do they feel confident about themselves and their future?

With these questions in mind, Générations Cobayes has launched a survey to evaluate our generation’s aspirations and priorities in life. To finally give them a voice, and share that voice with political leaders. With just a few months before the presidential elections in France, the happiness of citizens should be central to the political debate.

The survey is available in French here
