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.

Overview

The OECD’s PISA 2006 assessment of the science competencies of 15-year-olds offers the first comprehensive international comparison of what students know about the environment and environment-related issues. This evidence comes at a time when global environmental challenges, such as climate change and biodiversity, have never been greater. Young people’s knowledge, skills and attitudes in this area will be crucial in terms of the ability and willingness of a new generation to respond to these challenges.
