Using data provided by the PISA 2006 survey for the European Union, we test for the influence of the family, the…

Cooke, Anna N.; Fielding, Kelly S.; Louis, Winnifred R. – Environmental Education Research, 2016
To identify pathways to lower environmental impacts, this research examined the motivation and antecedents of motivation (autonomy, relatedness, competence), of environmentally active people. Previous research suggests that people with more self-determined motivation for pro-environmental behavior (PEB) should carry out more PEBs, and have lower…

Crociata, Alessandro; Mattoscio, Nicola – Environmental Education Research, 2016
Pro-environmental behaviours associated with reducing, reusing and recycling have become increasingly matters of public policy concern. However, the existing literature on waste management rarely considers the cultural factors associated with predictors and enablers of recycling behaviours, nor has it deeply explored the relation between cultural…

Chen, Chung-Ling; Tsai, Chen-Hao – Environmental Education Research, 2016
University students are regarded as future decision-makers in society and have a high likelihood of becoming opinion-shapers in terms of the environment. Their awareness of the marine environment will therefore have a significant effect upon sustainable marine development. This study examines Taiwanese university students' marine environmental…
