Young Australians’ codes to live by

Respecting others is good karma

In bad news for bigots, ARC funded research finds teens think multi-faiths make Australia a better place to live, despite half of them having no religion of their own. And 80 per cent of them support marriage equality. But they aren’t short of codes to live by, with half believing in karma, “a shorthand for ‘what goes around, comes around’ in this life.”

The findings are based on focus groups, interviews and a telephone survey of 15-16 year olds for the project, by researchers at ANU, Deakin and Monash universities.
