The young generation is predominantly more positive-minded

Gatersleben, 30th August 2013: The young generation in Germany is more positive-minded about genetic engineering in general and plant biotechnology in particular than the total population. In a representative survey of the market and opinion research institute Dimap, 18-29 year olds showed significantly more openness than other age groups towards all matters relating to green gene technology. Dimap explains in its final evaluation of the survey results (page11): "This largely positive attitude of the younger generation (18-29 years) might indicate a change of mind of the population in the future."
