Kuigi kestliku arengu küsimused on siinse kodulehe üheks fookusvaldkonnaks on need küsimused jäänud teiste valdkondade varju. Täpselt ei oska öelda, kuid põhjuseks võib olla minu enda uudistevoo seadistused, st linke nt organisatsioonide, juhtimise, politsei ja turvalisuse “külge” on oluliselt rohkem, kui keskkonda puudutavate väljaannete ja autorite kohta. On aga täiesti võimalik, et näiline väiksem tähelepanu on vildakas “tunne”.Siinviidatu võiks huvi pakkuda kõikidele inimestele, sest tegeleb kliimaküsimustega väga praktilisel igapäevasel tasandil: peresuhete ja kultuuri kaudu.


“Climate change is one of the greatest threats to humanity in contemporary society (Milfont, 2010). Thus, one agenda collectively shared among many countries is how to increase pro-environmental behavior to mitigate climate change. To achieve this goal, adopting intra-person perspectives that focus on personal characteristics such as attitudes and beliefs may not be enough because individual behaviors hugely depend on social relationships and surrounding social contexts (Rusbult & Van Lange, 2008).” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1098)

Igaühe käitumine loeb:

“Among different immediate contexts, private households, in particular, account for a large proportion of society’s environmental impact (Fremstad et al., 2018). Household energy consumption has been a major contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions on national and regional scales (Xu et al., 2015).” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1098)

“Parents typically take the most important role in the family context, in which they deeply influence their children’s values (Song et al., 2017), attitudes (Dong et al., 2020), and behaviors (McQuillan et al., 2020).” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1099)

Kahesuunaline liiklus:

“The question of how children, especially those in adolescence, can influence parents’ pro-environmental behaviors has also been raised (Gentina & Muratore, 2012), which can be recognized as the process of reverse socialization (i.e., ecological resocialization; Gentina & Muratore, 2012). In the process, children can influence and further transmit their environmental values, attitudes, and knowledge to their parents (Gentina & Singh, 2015).” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1100)

Võimudistants ja individualism:

“Societal power distance refers to the extent to which a society expects and accepts inequality in power (Hofstede, 1984; Winterich & Zhang, 2014). Low societal power distance may motivate individuals to put efforts into minimizing inequality (Hofstede, 1984, 2001; Winterich & Zhang, 2014).” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1103) […] “Societal individualism refers to the extent to which individuals in a society prefer to act as individuals rather than as members of groups (Hofstede, 1984). Specifically, people from collectivistic societies tend to emphasize ingroup identities (e.g., families), whereas those from individualistic societies tend to emphasize personal goals and values (Triandis, 2001).” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1103)

Vihje metoodikale:

“To explore the relationships between familiarity with climate change and pro-environmental behaviors in parent–adolescent dyads, we conducted the actor–partner interdependence model (APIM; Cook & Kenny, 2005). It is a statistical method that accounts for the interdependent nature of family member pairs (Cook & Kenny, 2005).” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1105)

“We found that parents’ familiarity with climate change was associated with adolescents’ pro-environmental behaviors, as found in 10 out of 14 societies in the present study.” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1119)

Võimudistants ja individualism …

“In the present study, we found that societal power distance and individualism moderated the parent-adolescent dyadic effects on pro-environmental behaviors. Specifically, low societal power distance and high societal individualism strengthened the positive relationship between parents’ familiarity with climate change and adolescents’ pro-environmental behaviors.” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1120)

“These findings urge us to conduct climate change education both for parents and adolescents, an important and urgent task for efficiently and effectively fostering pro-environmental behaviors at a family level.” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1123)
