Improving knowledge on environmental issues

The general public's knowledge of the environment is the foundation on which environmental policies build. This knowledge is often seriously deficient. Education and public awareness programmes can change attitudes and produce more environment-friendly and sustainable life styles, at the same time encouraging public participation and action on environmental issues. Formal and non-formal education on the environment is therefore critically important.
