Climate Change: An Education Student's Perspective
Climate change has become one of the major global challenges of the 21st century. It has been observed that the developing countries of the world (Philippines inclusive) will suffer most from the impacts of climate change. One of the easiest ways of intervention is through education. A well-informed person is likely to act positively towards managing the impact of climate change. A well-informed teacher (or teacher-to-be) will magnify this effect as they can influence their students towards climate change. In this study, a total of 76 education students’ perspectives about climate change were determined. One-way ANOVA, t-test, Pearson r were used to analyze responses. Data revealed that respondents have high perception and attitude on climate change and everyone shares the same no matter what is their age, gender or course. It also has confirmed that perception about climate change results into an attitude towards helping reduce factors causing climate change.
