An Empirical Study of Attitudes Toward Environment in Kuwait

Auther : Talaat Mansour

 

This study tackles man-environment relationship from transactional perspective, where man’s cognition’s, beliefs, attitudes and values represent a dynamic component interacting with environment. These attitudes underlay his orientation in the environment, with it, by it, and for it. Positive attitudes play a crucial role in the environmental protection and development, where as environmental deterioration and crisis due to man’s negative environmental attitudes. An inventory was developed to provide valid and reliable data on environmental attitudes in Kuwait, consisting of five subscales measuring attitudes toward conservation of life resources such as water and electricity, environmental protection, features of the environment, its aesthetic aspects, and attitudes toward the future of the environment.

Data has been collected from 458 Kuwaitis of both genders representing four developmental stages: adolescence, early adulthood, middle adulthood, and late adulthood. Results indicate that Kuwaitis have positive attitudes toward environment in Kuwait, and these attitudes increase with age across these generations. Males show positive attitudes toward environment more than females, and the differences are significant. However, there are overall consistent positive attitudes at Kuwaitis toward environment. The results are interpreted that Kuwaiti people experience their environment, either natural or man-made, as a “rewarding environment” with which they are identified.
