We worked with children and young people aged 11, 14 and 17 to examine their predispositions to act pro-socially and altruistically, using a mixture of urban and rural schools used. Pupils were questioned to gain insights into the reasons behind their actions and decisions. Initial findings for the UK will be presented, focusing on understanding young people's economic and altruistic decisions.
