young people want to be questions at the society in the future more and more of a say.
This is the result of a representative survey of the Opaschowski Institute for future research, in 1000 persons aged 14 years and over were interviewed. After that, it had been in the past five years, a strong increase in the number of under 20 year-old young people, the “a lot more people voting for the citizens” (2014: 73% – 2019: 94 percent).
“The young miss in the policy, clear ideas about how our society in 20, 30 years, look”, said the head of the Institute, Professor Horst Opaschowski. The “Fridays for Future”protests are not supposed to determine a new hands-on movement in the sense of article 20 paragraph 2 of the basic law, according to which all the state out of violence “in elections and votes by the people” and parties in the political will of the involved education only”,” but alone. “The youth protest groups against the political professionals, to become independent and threaten, and the interests come lose generations from the eyes,” said Opaschowski.
Besides, young people demanded more independent and responsible Action in the classroom. 92 per cent (2014: 77 per cent) were in favour of the statement: “among the most important Education of future independence and self-confidence, which must be promoted in school-based projects and practiced.” Therefore, the claim of politicians is wrong, young people should engage in their leisure time. “Education policy makers would need to carefully argue the opposite: Relevant future projects such as the Fridays-For-Future-motion must be brought from the street into the classroom and school routine, instead of building walls and isolating himself,” said Opaschowski.
