About this Research Topic
Climate change remains an important issue nowadays and the anthropocentric dimension of climate change, that is to say the role of human activities, is widely recognized. In this context, pro-environmental behavior and environmental attitudes have been investigated in a large number of studies. Among these studies, different measures and conceptualizations of pro-environmental behavior and environmental attitudes can be found. Their interplay with several factors such as contextual aspects and connectedness to nature is also studied in different ways.
The aim of this Research Topic is to reflect on environmental attitudes bringing together articles with different approaches, from a theoretical as well as methodological perspective, of environmental attitudes and/or their interplay with different factors in the context of pro-environmental behaviors. The Research Topic should thereby give an overview of current approaches, highlighting the diversity and resulting richness as well as challenges for environmental attitude research to encourage awareness and discussion for future research in the field.
