Examining Influences on Environmental Concern and Career Choice among a Cohort of Environmental Scientists
Wright, Tarah S. A.; Wyatt, S. Lilith
Applied Environmental Education and Communication, v7 n1-2 p30-39 2008
Although there is considerable literature discussing influence of environmental concern in the general population, and some literature specific to certain populations, to date there has not been a study that investigates the influences on environmental concern and career path for environmental scientists. With complex environmental issues becoming an increasing global concern, such information could be critical to developing strategies to encourage individuals to choose a career in environmental science. This study investigates the influences on environmental concern and career choice of Canadian environmental scientists. It offers insight into motivations for work, and contributes to understanding the sociology of the profession. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
