Abstract: Pro-environmental Behavior is a factor that is most important in explaining humans’ initiative to conserve nature. One of the most effective and wildly used ways to ensure that individuals develop pro-environmental behaviour is to implement environmental knowledge through education. However, in Indonesia, it has never been researched whether or not such specific nature-based curriculum schools really do implement environmental education better than the general-based curriculum counterpart. This research will focus on measuring how effective each schools curriculum in implementing their environmental education by comparing the mean score between the two groups. Theories related to pro-environmental behaviour such as the VBN model and nature relatedness are used as the main reference to compare how effective schools implement their environmental education to their students. This is a quantitative research that compares between the two groups using the independent sample t-test method. This research has discovered that the overall mean score of the participants are good. From these findings, it was discovered that from all the variables that are examined there are three distinct variables, which differ significantly from each group, that is variables ascription of responsibilities, personal norms and pro-environmental behaviour. It is found that pupils who attend a general-based school curriculum have a significantly higher score in ascription of responsibilities and personal norms compared to pupils who attend a nature-based school curriculum. In addition to that, pupils who attend a nature-based school curriculum are proven to have a significantly higher score in Pro-Environmental Behavior compared to pupils who attend a normal-based school curriculum. This research has found that students who attend nature-based curriculums do significantly behave more pro-environmentally compared to their general-besed curriculum counter-part. But, not thet do not excel in every variable which corresponds to pro-environmental behaviour. (More)
