Report on the changing trends in the way
young people in France spend their free time.
The purpose of this report is to show how the new leisure trends have
highly changed the way young people in France spend their free time.
From past to present
If we take a step some years backwards young people used to spend their free time outdoors
playing football, biking, or making friends. Today these recreational
activities only belong to the past having been replaced by video games, television,
and the new technologies. The digital revolution has really brought about a big
change in the way people spend their free time.
A blessing in disguise
The new generations are born and have grown up in a world governed by
the media and computers. It is estimated that about 65% of young people in
France, ranged between 18 and 25, spend at least 13 hours per week on the internet. They search for information, download music, play games, chat with
friends and use the social networks. This, however, might be a blessing in
disguise as statistics also show that this generation of young people read more, socialise more, and gets better
marks at school.
There is a clear preference for young people to spend time with the
computer instead of doing sport outside. However, this is not so terrible news.
Our study indicates that today’s young
people read more than our parents did in the past and are much more involved in
participating actively in on-line and real life communities.
