Country-side and city : Preschool teachers work with environmental issues (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to visualize similarities and differences in how preschool teachers work with environmental issues at preschools in country-sides and cities. I want to examine in what way preschool teachers experience and interest effect their environmental work. My method for this study is a web survey that was sent out to preschool teachers at different counties in Sweden and a total of 51 preschool teachers answered the survey. The results showed that there are some similarities and differences between the country-side and city. The proximity to nature area is important to how and what preschool teachers work and teach about. Preschool teachers worked in similar ways to get children to participate in environmental work and the educational tools that they used in their teaching. The study also showed that preschool teachers interest in environmental issues is of great importance to how they appreciate their knowledge and skills. Most preschool teachers in the different areas haven’t been offered or have had any education in environmental issues.
