Can Environmental Education Increase Student-Athletes' Environmental Behaviors?
Mullenbach, Lauren E.; Green, Gary T.
Environmental Education Research, v24 n3 p427-444 2018
Environmental education was incorporated within a mentoring program (i.e. treatment group) for student-athletes at the University of Georgia. These student-athletes' environmental attitudes, behavioral intent, knowledge, self-efficacy, self-regulatory learning, motivation, and learning strategies were assessed before and after their environmental education mentoring program. Results indicated student-athletes in the treatment group improved their self-reported environmental behaviors (t(32) = 2.34, p = 0.03) and self-efficacy (t(32) = 2.07, p = 0.04). However, future research should seek to determine how traits of student-athletes, such as their gender and chosen sport, may impact their level of environmental literacy and any possible impacts due to their mentors' environmental values.
