This chapter presents the findings of a survey designed to measure environmental attidudes of students undertaking higher education. Participants included students from Finland, France, Germany, the Netherland and the UK. The investigation attempts to assess personal consumption habits and response to environmental benevolent measures. Significant differences were found in groups with different country origin and sex. Patterns and tendencies of general environmental inclinations as a whole are highlighted. The difficulties, limitations and ongoing research work are also indicated.
