Environmental sustainability: Perceptions of international students in New Zealand
The purpose of this research is to investigate the perception of international students regarding environmental sustainability. It was determined that country of origin and age affect an individual’s thinking patterns to a great extent. While this study shows that there were commonly held views of respondents across different nationalities and age groups, there were also some notable differences, particularly in relation to abusing of the environment and the effects of pollution. This research will be of value to international tertiary institutions who have an interest in people’s attitudes towards sustainability and the environment.
