Burning Down the House is a joint report from Tearfund and Youthscape, investigating young Christians’ views about climate change. It’s central finding is that nine of ten young people are concerned about climate change, but only one out of ten thinks their church is doing enough.
The report was based on an extensive survey carried out by The Youthscape Centre for Research, including focus groups. I was commissioned to take the full internal report and distill it into a short and punchy summary for external audiences. I reduced it from 45 pages to 20, presented graphically, and framed around the young people’s own voices.
The report was launched in February 2021 and received national news coverage, including BBC News, MSN, Church Times, The Express and The Big Issue.
