This paper presents the results of content analysis of operational curricula in six secondary schools in the city of Split, including grammar schools and vocational high schools, with regard to the presence of topics on environmental issues. Using qualitative “directed content analysis”, for this purpose, explicit environmental contents in the curricula of sampled schools were isolated and analyzed. The results show that the courses of Ethics and Technology with Ecology are those containing the most requested topics on environmental issues. Also, all researched topics, although with diff erent quantity, can be found in almost all the analyzed curricula, except in the curriculum for the profession of Administrative Offi cer. Concerning the distribution of certain topics, it has been emphasized that the topic of sustainable development was least represented in the curricula. Recommendations for further development of secondary school curricula with regard to environment primarily relate to the changing status of the course in Ethics. Likewise, this paper suggests a continuation of the already started ecologisation practice for the courses such as Biology and Geography, then a rethinking of the concept of a separate course on environmental issues as well as introducing outdoor teaching by encouraging the inclusion of formal education into educational projects of cross-sectoral cooperation for local development.
