Pablo Olivos Jara, Fernando Talayero, Juan Ignacio Aragonés, Emilio Moyano-Díaz

Resumo


Conectividade com a Natureza (CNS) e Identidade Ambiental (EID) têm sido propostas para a incorporação do ambiente natural no próprio (self), no entanto, nenhuma informação conclusiva e disponível sobre o seu papel como preditores de comportamentos pró-ambientais. As respostas de 306 estudantes universitários a um questionário, composto por as duas escalas e uma de intenção de comportamento pró-ambiental (CPA) são discutidos. Para reduzir o efeito de desejabilidade social também foram feitas perguntas destinadas a medir o comprometimento dos participantes com atividades de informação e de conservação do meio ambiente, as respostas permitiu no desenvolvimento de um Indicador de Compromisso Pró-ambiental (ICP). Os resultados mostram que três fatores estão na base de CPA, que correspondem a comportamentos Ecologista, Campiste e Urbano. A estreita relação entre a conduta Ecologista e outras medidas é observada. Contribuição do EID e CNS para o estudo de CPA é discutidos.

Palavras-chave


Conectividade com a natureza; identidade ambiental; compromisso pró-ambiental; comportamento pró-ambiental.
