Abstract:
Though most environmental problems involve causes and consequences on a global scale, relatively little is known about the role of distance in relation to a person's willingness to take action. Based on an extended version of Schwartz′ norm activation model, we examined the impact of perceived socio-spatial distance on adolescents' willingness to engage in pro-environmental behavior (WPEB). Comparing two samples that referred to either a national (n = 468) or a socio-spatially distant location (n = 470), we found no significant difference in WPEB. Multiple-group structural equation modeling (SEM) revealed that the adolescents in the distance sample demonstrated a greater awareness of biospheric consequences, while at the same time perceiving less behavioral control and increased helplessness about undertaking actions to counter environmental problems. We provide an outline of theoretical and empirical considerations regarding the role of distance as well as educational implications for fostering WPEB in a globalized world.
