Abstract [sv]

Resandet i världen ökar och detta leder till både positiva och negativa konsekvenser. Hur miljö och människor påverkas av turismindustrin är högst aktuellt och genom detta har studiens syfte utformats. Syftet är att undersöka studenters värderingar samt medvetenhet kring arbetsvillkor och miljö inom turismnäringen. Ett kvantitativt tillvägagångsätt har används för att få ett representativt urval. Enkätformulär har skickats ut till studenter på Högskolan i Halmstad och 414 studenter har deltagit. Genom analys av resultatet har många signifikanta skillnader hittats. Kortfattat visar studien att studenter anser sig vara medvetna om miljö men inte lika medvetna om arbetsvillkorsfrågor inom turismen. Gällande fokusområdena arbetsvillkor och miljö hade studenterna höga värderingar. Faktorerna kön, ålder, utbildningsområde, akademisk nivå samt hur ofta man reser påverkar studenternas medvetenhet och värderingar på olika sätt.

Abstract [en]

Tourism and travelling are increasing around the world and this leads to positive and negative impacts. How the environment and people are affected by the tourism industry is an up to date question. This is one of the reasons that the purpose of the study have been chosen. The purpose is to investigate students' values and awareness of working conditions and environment in the tourism industry. A quantitative approach has been used to obtain a representative sample. Questionnaires were distributed to students at Halmstad University and 414 students participated. Many significant differences have been found while analysing the data. To summarise the study, students consider themselves to be aware of the environment but are not as aware of the consequences of the working conditions within the tourism sector. The students had high values of the study’s focus areas: working conditions and environment. The factors of gender, age, field of study, academic level, and how often the students travel affects students' awareness and values in different ways.
