Explaining Environmental Activism Across Countries

Explaining Environmental Activism Across Countries This article tests a model of pathways to environmental activism across 16 nations using structural equation modeling. Given previous research, a model is proposed articulating individual resources, knowledge, awareness of consequences, attitudes, willingness to contribute, and efficacy as factors influencing environmental activism. The mediating effect of willingness to make environmental contributions is investigated in detail based on expectations from prior studies. Results from analysis of International Social Survey Program data are broadly supportive of the model across 16 countries individually, as education, awareness of consequences, and attitudes combined affect environmental activism. Moreover, mediating tests demonstrate a prominent but not exclusive role of willingness to contribute in promoting activism across nations, uncovering relationships that are masked in previous cross-national research. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Society & Natural Resources Taylor & Francis

Abstract

This article tests a model of pathways to environmental activism across 16 nations using structural equation modeling. Given previous research, a model is proposed articulating individual resources, knowledge, awareness of consequences, attitudes, willingness to contribute, and efficacy as factors influencing environmental activism. The mediating effect of willingness to make environmental contributions is investigated in detail based on expectations from prior studies. Results from analysis of International Social Survey Program data are broadly supportive of the model across 16 countries individually, as education, awareness of consequences, and attitudes combined affect environmental activism. Moreover, mediating tests demonstrate a prominent but not exclusive role of willingness to contribute in promoting activism across nations, uncovering relationships that are masked in previous cross-national research.
