ABSTRACT La Educación Ambiental debe aportar nuevos puntos de vista al análisis de la realidad ambiental y social a fin de cambiar el actual sistema de relaciones entre ambas por otro que no genere alteraciones. Pero esta construcción no es posible desde cualquier modelo de Educación Ambiental, ya que las metas a perseguir y los métodos para hacerlo están determinados por la estructura ideológica que le sirve de soporte. Por ello, consideramos imprescindible aclarar dicho modelo, pues toda propuesta educativa exige la concreción previa de un cuerpo teórico. Éste difiere del resto de teorías o planteamientos disciplinares en su enfoque holístico y nos ayudará a comprender el significado educativo de la Educación Ambiental para un Desarrollo Sostenible. Este tipo de desarrollo lleva implícita una forma de entender el mundo y de actuar en consecuencia con ello.

    ABSTRACT: A sharper profile of environmental education is needed to improve the quality of future environmental education. This involves an understanding of the conceptions related to ‘environmental issues’. It is argued that environmental issues have to be understood as issues in the community with conflicting interests at several levels. At the same time the authors argue for the development of the ‘action competence’ of the pupils as the main goal of the new generation of environmental education and refer to promising findings from Danish environmental education, mainly from the MUVIN Programme.

    ABSTRACT: This article develops a conceptual framework for advancing theories of environ- mentally significant individual behavior and reports on the attempts of the author's research group and others to develop such a theory. It discusses defini- tions of environmentally significant behavior; classifies the behaviors and their causes; assesses theories of environmentalism, focusing especially on value-belief-norm theory; evaluates the relationship between environmental concern and behavior; and summarizes evidence on the factors that determine environmentally significant behaviors and that can effectively alter them. The article concludes by presenting some major propositions supported by available research and some principles for guiding future research and informing the design of behavioral programs for environmental protection. Recent developments in theory and research give hope for building the under- standing needed to effectively alter human behaviors that contribute to environ- mental problems. This article develops a conceptual framework for the theory of environmentally significant individual behavior, reports on developments toward such a theory, and addresses five issues critical to building a theory that can inform efforts to promote proenvironmental behavior.
