image of Green at Fifteen?
The OECD’s PISA 2006 assessment of the science competencies of 15-year-olds offers the first comprehensive and internationally comparative knowledge base of students’ knowledge about the environment and environment-related issues. Green at Fifteen? presents an analysis of this knowledge base, including information on the sources of students’ awareness of environmental science, their attitudes towards the environment and how these attitudes interrelate with their performance in environmental science.



A Profile of Student Performance in Environmental Science and Geoscience

A solid education in environmental science and geoscience can help students in their future academic and professional careers. Equally important, it will help them become capable citizens ready to make personal and social decisions based on scientific evidence about future environmental challenges. It is therefore worth asking: What do students know about environmental science and geoscience? What can they do with this knowledge? How competent are they in explaining scientific evidence and using scientific evidence in environmental science and geoscience?
