INVESTIGATION OF THE LEVEL OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION IN KARLOVAC CITY
SUMMARY: The paper describes opinions and assessments of students – as the younger population of the city of Karlovac and its surroundings – related to the pollution of their living environment. Karlovac County has several unsolved ecological problems. These problems are important for the students of the Polytechnic of Karlovac, as they are future academic citizens whose duty will be to solve ecological problems. The paper explores student assessments regarding Karlovac’s living environment. Their opinions about the causes, consequences, responsibilities and methods of solving the aforementioned problems are investigated by means of a student survey. Particular ecological problems are ranked on a range from 1 to 5. The research findings indicate some priority questions which need to be solved (the conditions will remain unchanged, consequences for human health due to water pollution and technical- technological factors as well as other pollution sources will remain at high level, and insufficient awareness and education about these problems of all citizens and institutions is still present). For this reason this investigation should help increase the overall quality of life, as a continuous process towards achieving and improving human and institutional values.
