Abstract

Global warming has aroused international emphasis in past years. The improvement in global environmental problems is urgent, and the promotion of environmental education is an important route to enhance humans’ environmental literacy and solve environmental problems. People have paid more attention to environmental education or environmental issues in management education, expecting to enrich people’s environmental knowledge and environmental value through environmental education so as to change people’s attitudes. In this case, people would naturally emphasize environmental issues, take behaviors beneficial to the environment, i.e. responsible environmental behaviors, particularly the environmental knowledge of the next generation, and cultivate the habit to protect the environment. Aiming at students of Central University of Finance and Economics, total 360 copies of questionnaire are randomly distributed, and 288 valid copies are retrieved, with the retrieval rate 80%. The research results show significant and positive correlations between 1.environmental education and environmental knowledge, 2.environmental knowledge and environmental value, and 3.environmental education and environmental value. According to such results, suggestions are proposed, expecting to find out the effect of environmental education on people’s environmental knowledge and environmental value and have relevant environmental units find specific ways to strengthen the citizens’ responsible environmental behaviors.
