Abstract

Environmental risks and dilemmas in the global climate changes in past years have threatened human life. Scholars propose to reflect from the depth of human beings and establish the mutual ethic relationship between humans and natural environment to solve environmental problems. Various problems caused by the advance of technology could merely be solved by delivering correct value and natural ethics through education. Taking 360 students of Yangtze University, Hubei, as the research samples, the 32-week (3 hours per week) experimental research is preceded in this study. Among 360 distributed copies of questionnaire, 289 copies are valid, with the retrieval rate 80%. The research results show significant correlations between 1.environmental education and environmental ethics, 2.environmental ethics and environmental literacy, and 3.environmental education and environmental literacy. According to the results, suggestions are proposed, expecting to apply proper teaching methods to environmental education for smoother environmental education and effectively cultivating students’ environmental ethics and environmental literacy.
