Abstract

The AGS Taskforce on Environmental Education (AGSTEE) has developed a survey tool (questionnaire) that is designed to assess the attitudes of the students regarding environmental issues. It was decided that the questionnaire be applied in the four AGS partner schools, but for the time being, the results from the University of Tokyo, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich and Lausanne have been obtained and analyzed. Students from these three schools have in general a high consciousness about environment, but there are differences in terms of behaviours among the three schools.
