Abstract [en]

Waste management is a major challenge for several countries around the world. Sweden and the Philippines have similar waste management legalization but different potentials to effectively achieve the goal of sustainable waste management. Education is the key to sustainable development and both countries promote the subject environment in the curriculum. Based on scientific articles, reports and personal meetings, a survey was conducted among 510 students from Gothenburg, Sweden and Iloilo City, Philippines. The survey aimed to investigate the knowledge, attitude and behavior regarding waste management and was analyzed to answer questions of possible reasons to differences and also, linkages to sustainable development. The level of knowledge was overall high and the attitude among the students positive in both countries. The differences among the students answers, in both countries, did not generally differ in terms of knowledge and behavior. However, the questions regarding attitude showed a statistical significance indicating that Filipino students had a more positive attitude to the subject environment in the curriculum, waste segregation and the importance of waste management for a sustainable development. Several links between the different questions showed that attitude can influence the behavior regarding waste segregation and that other factors are important. It also showed that further studies are of importance to find out what these possible factors are.
