NEEF Teen Benchmark Survey

In today’s technology-driven world, teens are disconnected from their environment and spend very little time outdoors, which threatens their health and well-being. NEEF surveyed teens across the country to better understand how they interact with the outdoors, and who they turn to for information about the environment. The survey offers a snapshot of what teens do in their spare time, who they listen to, and what their interests are.
