The purpose of the survey was to get the insight into the level of children’s awareness of the climate change and related topics. The survey showed that:
- Children in primary and secondary schools recognized global warming as a serious problem for Montenegro.
- Children in primary and secondary schools showed readiness to undertake activities that will contribute to environment protection and/or reduction of harmful gas emissions in the future period.
- The school and the media play an important role in education and raising level of awarness on global warming. As survey results show, children obtain information about global warming primarily through TV and in school (37.1% and 31.0%)
The survey was conducted in Berane, Bijelo Polje and Pljevlja (Northern region), Nikšić and Podgorica (Central region) and Bar, Ulcinj and Herceg Novi (Southern region) on the sample of 666 boys/girls students by the CEED Consulting company for UNICEF and UNDP in Montenegro in September 2011.
