Ben Hur, Yehuda; Bar, Haviva
This paper focuses on three goals for improving the environmental knowledge and attitudes of elementary and junior high students: (1) analyzing the short-term influence of the "Year of the Environment" on school activities concerning the environment; (2) analyzing the contribution of the "Year of the Environment" to the knowledge and attitudes of students towards the environment; and (3) examining the relationships amongst variables such as the amount of students' time invested in environmental issues at school; integration of environmental education in the overall school "culture"; students' knowledge and attitudes towards the environment; and students' awareness, responsibility, and commitment to the environment.
