Environmental issues are not unique to a particular community or geographic location but are transnational. As a result, it is clear that the problems that arise in any part of the earth can have different consequences elsewhere. Today's environmental crisis is due to a lack of knowledge and awareness of environmental issues. According to Fritiov, educating environmental consciousness is the first step towards sustainability and is essentially a prerequisite for humanity's future environmental awareness, the ability to understand the principles of environmental knowledge and to live by them. One of the basic assumptions in environmental studies is that many environmental problems can be resolved by increasing public awareness about the environment. In other words, environmental awareness is believed to be the key to solving many environmental problems as a result of sustainable development. Villages as one of the places to live due to their special proximity to nature, have the greatest impact on the environment and also receive the most impact from the environment; Have an important role and impact on the environment. For this reason, today's awareness of environmental issues as one of the most important programs in countries, especially developing countries, is being addressed in order to achieve sustainable environmental development. Comprehensive Sustainable Rural Development approaches are now seeking to penetrate new development paradigms to provide a secure framework aimed at reforming and enhancing key concepts in development policies such as sustainability, self-sustained participation, awareness and awareness. Are environments.
This research is an applied research in terms of purpose and orientation, Its results are applicable to developers and experts alike. In terms of time, as this research is conducted at a specific time interval, it is one-dimensional type of research. In this research, in terms of logic or research approach, this study seeks to specially analyze the factors affecting the environmental awareness of the villagers in Gorgan. In this study, our statistical population is about 8 households (at present) living in 8 villages. A sample of 277 individuals was selected using Cochran volume determination formula. For accuracy, 280 subjects were selected as statistical sample. A simple sampling method was used to complete the questionnaire to assess the environmental awareness of the villagers. Samples were randomly selected from the villagers. The sample size was proportionally distributed among the villages and then the samples were randomly selected from the villages.
Results and discussion
The findings of the research indicate a significant relationship between social factors and environmental awareness of the villagers, and the results also show that there is no relationship between economic factors and environmental awareness of the villagers. The study also showed that the first step in the process of environmental education is access to information through the media. The results of this study showed that, essentially, the condition of humanity's future survival is environmental awareness, the ability to understand environmental principles and live by them.
Most of the research has focused on the impact of environmental awareness on environmental behavior and has not paid attention to the influence of factors on environmental awareness, especially economic factors affecting this factor.
