CONSCIOUSNESS

It has been defined loosely as a constellation of attributes of mind such as subjectivity, self-awareness, sentience, and the ability to perceive a relationship between oneself and one's environment.


Values

VALUES

Beliefs of a person or social group in which they have an emotional investment (either for oragainst something).

Personal values evolve from situations with the external world and can change over time.

The integrity in the application of values refers to its continuity; persons have integrity if they apply their values appropriately regardless of arguments or negative reinforcement from others.

ATTITUDE

Is a hypothetical construct that represents an individual's like or dislike for an item. Attitudes are positive, negative or neutral views of an "attitude object.”

Attitudes can be changed through persuasion. Emotion is a common component in persuasion, social influence, and attitude change.

MISSION OF EDUCATION

  • 1. It is important to recognize that the teachers play an important role in teaching environmental-based concepts.

  • 2. If there is an urge to do something for the environment, the teachers will try to teach Environmental Education despite the barriers.

  • 3. The schools are really interested in these environmental issues, but it is not enough yet. Teachers need the support of the whole society, it is a collective effort.


Let s work together

Let’s work together...

It is stated that if the students do not have the proper knowledge and understanding of causes and effects of these environmental issues, it will be very hard for them to make correct decisions in the future to reduce and control these problems.


Proposal

PROPOSAL

  • We must understand that it is urgent to give the necessary training both to the students in school and the people in society.

  • Because, to know is not enough, to apply is also necessary.


A final reflection
