Harbeen Bawa, Dr. Mudita Bhatnagar
Various environmental problems pose a threat to environmental sustainability, among which global warming, urban air pollution, water shortages, environmental noise, and loss of biodiversity. Many of these problems are rooted in human behaviour. To address global environmental challenges it is crucial to understand how humans make decisions about environmentally relevant behaviour, since a shift to alternative behaviors can make a relevant difference. Professor George Wald has summarized in the Heritage: “Three billion years of life, three millions years of manlike creatures, ten thousand years of civilization and a mere 200 years of the industrial revolution have brought us to the brink of disaster”. In this paper the research scholar has attempted a study of responsible environmental behaviour among B.Ed. students in two prime universities of State of Haryana i.e. Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra (KUK) and Maharishi Dayanand University, Rohtak (M.D.U.).
