Effectiveness of the Environmental Education in Enhancing Preparedness of the Vulnerable Population in an Urban Community in the Eastern Philippines

Publisher: Bicol University

Environmental education (E.E.) is a special kind of instruction that should not only be confined to schools, nor should it cater to students who are enrolled in formal academic programs or curricula. In this study, an environmental education program was designed and implemented in the urban community of Sagpon, Daraga Albay. The participants were eight adults and 11 in-school youth. Using the pre-test and post-test design, the researcher assessed the effectiveness of environmental education in enhancing the preparedness of the vulnerable populations in the urban community of Daraga Albay. The self-assessment results revealed that the respondents became more aware of the fundamental environmental issues after the intervention program. However, comparing competence on E.E. based on the adults' and ISYs' pre- test and post-test yielded an insignificant result. The study strongly recommends the continuance of the E.E. program in the same community, directly addressing the components which were found to be most relevant to the community.
