A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE ENVIORMENTAL AWARNESS AMONG SCIENCE AND ARTS STUDENTS OF +2 CLASS

DR. HARMEET KAUR

Abstract

The environment, which sustains life, is in peril at present. Human actions are responsible for this rapid industrialization; further advancement in science and technology and the abuse of this advancement in an arbitrary way and the fast growth of urbanization have posed danger to man himself.

Generally, people are indifferent to their environment. Newton’s 3rd law states – “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.” This equally applies to man’s relationship with nature as it relates to application of force on inanimate objects. While man sought domination over nature in five thousand years realize that his welfare and his very existence are deeply intertwined with the natural cycles and systems. Thus there is a need to create environmental awareness among human beings.

As the problem is one, of the people, for the people and by the people, a proper understanding and support of the people will go a long way in carrying out anti-pollution measures.

As the future of our country depends upon our young pupils, at school level, thus they must develop a proper sense of environment’s problem and environmental awareness, only then they can help the society in maintaining the atmosphere clean and clear. The investigator by this study will try to know the extent or degree of environmental awareness among urban and rural students of grade XII. Generally it is thought that science students are more aware about environmental problems than that of arts students. The investigator wants to know the real position. After this study, she will be in the position to find out the difference, if any, between these two sets of students.
