Young people are willing to fly less and cut down on red meat to help the environment.

That's according to new research from the ESRI, which surveyed 16 to 24-year-olds on their views on climate action.

Over 90 per cent feel protecting the environment is very important, with little difference in attitudes when it comes to socio-economic background or the urban/rural divide.

Professor Pete Lunn, Head of the Behavioural Research Unit at the ESRI, says young people are in favour of bans and taxes too, to cut down on our emissions;

"They're not sure what the actions that have the biggest impact are and they need help with that and many of them are supporting more radical policies including some bans and increased taxes on the most damaging activity."
