THE IMPORTANCE OF ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS EDUCATION AT UNIVERSITIES

A. Karataş

Niğde University (TURKEY)
Human-centered perspective has a major impact on the emergence of global environmental problems. Extinction of species, desertification and pollution clearly reveals this impact. However, like all the other living species human being is a living creature and needs a clean and sustainable environment to live too. Environmental ethics which is related to moral relations between people and their natural environment emerges as a key concept at this point. Human-centered perspective can be converted into eco-centered one via environmental ethics and people’s perspectives towards the environment and environmental values can be changed positively. Evironmental ethics education can show the direction to the works to be done in this regard. Particularly at the universities as important places in people’s scientific and social development, young people taking both vocational and environmental ethics eduction will not be the source of environmental problems but part of the solution when they begin their professional career. In this theoretical study, the importance of environmental ethics education for the university students will be emphasized.
