Environmental Ethics for Sustainable Development: A Comparative Study on Tribal and Non-Tribal Secondary School Students
Science, as a part of way of life, has been developed to help human beings and has the ethical responsibility of improving the quality of life. As far as Environment is concerned, the preliminary harmonic association between man and Environment has been critically distressed throughout current decades. The unrestrained progression of Technology and mankind’s leading performance over Nature, have shaped serious environmental troubles. Unless these troubles will be restricted, they may create lasting unfavorable trends which may even put at risk earth’s capacity. In order to attain feasible progress and harmonious coexistence between Mankind and Nature, mankind has to shape a novel association with the environment. At present the world is witnessing numerous environmental problems, which are the result of un-mindful exploitations of natural resources by human beings. There is an urgent need to create environmental ethics among all the citizens in general and student community in particular so as to enable us in ensuring Environmental Sustainability which is one amongst the Millennium Development Goals. The present study was conducted on Tribal and Non-Tribal Secondary Students of Jammu and Kashmir on a randomly selected sample of 302 Tribal and 277 Non-Tribal Secondary School Students. The researcher found that the Non-Tribal Secondary School Students have high Environmental Ethics than their Tribal counterparts.
