According to the theory of inter-generational, major events that a generation experiences together can exert indelible influence on the behavioral patterns of the generation.

In the Chinese Lunar New Year of 2020, post-90s and post-00s who are called ‘Foxi’ or “Buddha-style” together witness the outbreak of COVID-19, which is an event they’ve concerned themselves more with than Wenchuan earthquake in 2008.

And SARS in 2003, busy in “Classroom in the Air,” they had not yet formed a strong sense of crisis or perception of uncertainty.

After the epidemic, will these youngsters carry on their “Buddha-style” attitudes, like “it’s fine to having something or not, and there is no need to pursue or win anything,” ? Or, will they adjust their mode of behavior with rising sense of crisis?

In view of this, Ipsos China conducted a survey ‘Under the epidemic: the young generation,’ so as to probe into changes of young people’s mentality, daily activities, consumer behavior and pursuit of value during and after the epidemic.
