Abstract


This survey investigates the level of environmental education among secondary school students in Mubi Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Nigeria. The population of the study comprises all secondary school students in Mubi Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Nigeria. Systematic sampling technique is employed to select four secondary schools in Mubi. A simple random sampling technique was employed in selecting fifty respondents from each school. Data are analysed using frequency count and simple percentage. Two hundred (200) copies of questionnaire with 20 structured questions are distributed to the respondents. The results reveal among others that students are not absolutely ignorant of environmental issues, but when they cleaned their environment, they dump refuse in drainage and road sides. The level of environmental awareness and management were inadequate. Also, based on survey and interview carried out, it was found that there were no environmental related clubs and association among schools to educate student on the environmental problems. Hence, there is need to enlighten and sensitize the individual’s knowledge and perception of the environment in order to enhance a sustainable habitable environment particularly in Mubi enclave
