Abstract [en]

  During recent decades, the "environment" has become established in many countries both as an important item on the political agenda, and as an area of concern for large sections of the public. However, "environmental concern" is often treated as homogeneous, with little regard being taken to the influence of actual physical conditions - such as degradation of the biosphere - individual's and group's differing belief systems, and the territorial aspects of environmental perceptions. In this thesis, these neglected aspects of public environmental concern are examined, and the role of the mass media, as a communicator of environmental information and attitudes, is studied. Mass surveys of public environmental beliefs and attitudes were conducted in 1992 and 1994 in Sweden, Latvia, and Estonia, and content analyses of newspaper coverage of environmental issues were conducted during 1992- 93 in Great Britain, Sweden, Latvia, and Estonia. The results of these studies demonstrate that public environmental concern is heterogeneous, dissonant, and that it differs between countries. It is also shown that environmental concern can originate both iu personal experience of salient local environmental problems, and in communicated knowledge of abstract global environmental issues.
