Study of pro-environmental behavior in University students for the development of an educational intervention


In recent years, concern about the reckless exploitation of natural resources and the violation of environmental resources has been increasingly growing, fuelling global political and economic debate. It is evident that the current scenario is the result of centuries of ill-considered human decisions and actions that call into question the balance of the ecosystem. More environmental awareness needs to be developed, starting from schools. The research project is oriented towards the training of educators and teachers on this issue. The study presented here shows the results of the preliminary survey carried out on a panel of university students enrolled in Education Sciences to identify their level of pro-environmental sensitivity and behaviour and proposes the thematic areas of the training course to be developed. It will have an innovative connotation, combining the potential of digital technologies with an embodied learning approach.
