Sass, Wanda; Boeve-de Pauw, Jelle; Olsson, Daniel; Gericke, Niklas; De Maeyer, Sven; Van Petegem, Peter – Journal of Environmental Education, 2020
The concept of Action Competence (AC) has been interpreted in different ways in various domains of the educational sciences. Given the rising scholarly attention to AC, these diverse interpretations are problematic because they hinder a common understanding of the concept among scholars. We unravel the interpretation of AC as a competence of…

Ballouard, J.-M.; Conord, M.; Johany, A.; Jardé, N.; Caron, S.; Deleuze, S.; Bonnet, X. – Journal of Environmental Education, 2020
The likeability of organisms is an effective tool for conservation education. However, stimulating the cute appeal of animals can also bolster the desire to possess them, and thus can encourage the trade in animals as pets. We assessed the perception of primary French schoolchildren (7-11 years old) for the Hermann tortoise (Testudo hermanni), a…

In Israel, youth movements (YMs) comprise a main agent for nonformal education of youth and a youth-engagement framework in which civic engagement can be expanded to address environmental challenges. A major source of sociocultural diversity among YMs is their religious identity, based on the categorizations of secular, religious, and…

Questionnaires answered by 760 teenagers (13-16 years old) from Germany and Austria were analyzed using a hierarchical cluster analysis. The teenagers were assigned…
