Sažetak

This paper is the result of a national level survey on the state of knowledge, awareness and attitudes
of high school students in Croatia towards the problem of light pollution. Differences in
communal infrastructure in Croatia are large, and also reflected in the aspect of light pollution.
The conducted research was not aimed at comparing the situation in environment regarding
light pollution, but at knowing the issues, subjective attitudes and perceptions of high school
students towards the impact of light pollution on the environment. To obtain the most objective
insight, the research is based on quantitative methods, and the results are presented and
interpreted with the help of descriptive and inductive statistics.
The results show the homogeneity of the respondents at the national level, in their knowledge
of the issues, awareness and attitudes on light pollution. The comparison of students from
rural and urban areas, in terms of light pollution awareness, showed that there were no major
differences, and that the general awareness is relatively high. The comparison of students from
rural and urban areas, in terms of light pollution prevention, also shows that there are no major
differences and that the readiness to act is high. However, some differences were also observed
between the urban and rural student populations in terms of assessing the impact of light pollution
on the environment. Students from urban areas estimate that the impact of light pollution
on the environment is neutral or small, in contrast to students from rural areas who are
more inclined to assess the impact in the category of small and very small.
