Abstract

Abstract

This study investigates the association between political trust and four different types of political participation among young people and a possible mediation of these associations by a feeling of personal responsibility on the topic of climate change. The analysis is based on wave ten of the European Social Survey and is limited to young people from 18 to 25 years old from 16 European countries. Some important findings are that high political trust is associated with a higher chance of voting and a lower chance of lifestyle politics. The association between trust and lifestyle politics is also suppressed via the feeling of personal responsibility on the topic of climate change. The results are critically discussed and recommendations for future research and policy are made.
