Environmental Knowledge, Attitudes and Actions of Bavarian (Southern Germany) and Asturian (Northern Spain) Adolescents
Zecha, Stefanie
International Research in Geographical and Environmental Education, v19 n3 p227-240 Aug 2010
This empirical study investigates the environmental awareness of school children in Bavaria and Asturias. The analysis was based on a data-set (Bavaria, 900 students; Asturias, 182 students) that was collected in spring 2007. Students aged between 14 and 15 years responded to a paper-and-pencil questionnaire. The theoretical concept follows the premise that environmental awareness could be divided into three dimensions: environmental knowledge, attitudes and actions. The results show that there are cultural influences in the scales of knowledge, attitudes and actions. Also, different independent variables have a significant bearing on the Bavarian and Asturian students' levels of environmental knowledge, readiness to act and personal environmental action. (Contains 12 tables.)
