Environmental Awarness of Senior Secondary Students in Relation to their Eco-Friendly Behaviour CLICK HERE TO ABSTRACT
Knowledge acquired, if not put into action is of no use and will go waste. If the
awareness to protect environment manifests in the form of execution then the world will
be a better place to live in. The present study shows the level of environmental
awareness in relation to eco-friendly behaviour through the sample drawn randomly from
two CBSE affiliated schools of Bhopal. The sample consisted of 150 students, which
includes 75 boys and 75 girls. Survey method was used for the study and questionnaire
was used to assess the environmental awareness and eco-friendly behaviour by taking
into consideration natural resources like air, soil, water and their sustainable use. The data
was statistically analysed using Karl Pearson’s coefficient of correlation (‘r’). Findings
indicate that respondents had only a limited understanding of environmental issues which
positively impact eco-friendly behaviour. We often talk about clean and green
environment but little do we think of using eco-friendly products. Most environmental
education to date has focused on green topics i.e. tree planting and nature conservation.
Connections have seldom been made between environmental issues and social, cultural
and economic concerns. Key principles of education for conservation include critical
thinking and social transformation. These elements have often been lacking from
environmental education.
