Health and Environment: Young People's Biggest Wish for 2006

2006-01-24 09:33:59
In 2006, Chinese youth's greatest wish for themselves is to be healthy and fit, and their biggest wish for the society at large is "to control environment pollution."

That's according to a survey conducted by the China Youth Daily, which attracted nearly 2000 young people, of an average age of 27, to express their dreams and concerns for the new year.

Nearly 80 per cent of respondents said keeping fit was their biggest personal wish for 2006. Improvements in their studies, careers and relationships were ranked next.

Although improving themselves is most young people's vision for the future, the survey also found more than one third of respondents thought the most urgent thing to improve was their salary. They are concerned that their stable incomes are not keeping pace with rising prices.

More than 50 per cent hope environmental pollution can be more effectively controlled in 2006. This hope is listed ahead of "improving public safety", "narrowing the gap between the rich and poor" and "lowering medical costs".
