Abstract in another language

This empirical study finds support for the hypothesis that participation in a special residential education programme enhances facets of pupils' environmental perception. A 4-day extra-curricular educational unit with a cognitive outdoors focus (established in a nature centre in France) was surveyed by using a two stage sampling design in a pre-post-treatment evaluation; the post-test was delayed for a one-month period after participation. All selected participating pupils (n=151) responded twice to the same perception questionnaire. The factorial structure of this questionnaire had been previously developed using a large European sample (n=4500) and separately validated in a smaller French pupil sample (n=1400). The matched-pair pre-post-test survey showed significant differences in two of the five primary factors; both of them covered utilitarian preferences and scored in a way which indicated an increase in sensitivity to the environment. A pre-post-tested control group (n=78) revealed no significant difference. Possible reasons for the partial shift in primary factors are discussed, including a consideration of two related studies (in Germany and Switzerland) which were both monitored by the same measurement instrument. L’hypothèse suivante sous-tend cette étude empirique : la participation dans un programme éducatif résidentiel améliore la perception que les élèves ont de l’environnement. L’impact d’un stage de 4 jours dans un centre nature en France a été mesuré par un pré et un post-test. Le post-test a été proposé un mois après la participation au stage. Les élèves sélectionnés (N=151) ont répondu deux fois au même questionnaire de perceptions. La structure de ce questionnaire avait été développée avec un large échantillon européen (N=4500) et validé séparément sur un échantillon de 1400 élèves français. Les pré et post-tests ont permis de mettre en évidence une différence significative concernant deux des cinq facteurs primaires.
