In this subsection, we will discuss Environmental Citizenship in the context of both definitions; however, we will be focusing more on the cognitive definition of beliefs, as individual beliefs are more prone to change and are more malleable through education and experience.

Values, Beliefs and Environmental Citizenship

Normative beliefs reflect the perceptions of whether behaviours are desirable and prevalent, as well as which behaviours are punished or rewarded.

Both of these models are useful in pro-environmental behaviour research; however, the VBN model was created as a specific model for Environment and Citizenship and explaining pro-environmental actions, while the TPB is a general model for predicting and explaining behaviours. Understanding how values and beliefs relate to Environmental Citizenship would allow for evidence-based ways of promoting Environmental Citizenship in schools and communities and would empower educators to make effective decisions in promoting Environmental Citizenship.

1 Predicting and Explaining Environmental Citizenship Through Beliefs Beliefs are at the core of two predictive models that are largely used to predict and explain actions relevant to Environmental Citizenship.

Values, Beliefs and Environmental Citizenship

Moreover, all aspects that comprise Environmental Citizenship need to be tackled specifically and with precision. Values have the potential to be changed in order to help people develop more favourable belief-forming strategies that would lead to increased Environmental Citizenship. Altruistic values are usually related to all socially desirable behaviours and therefore to pro-environmental behaviours as well Steg and De Groot.

However, Environment and Citizenship are many studies on how values relate to a very important component of Environmental Citizenship — pro-environmental behaviours Steg et al. Some research, however, has provided compelling evidence for interpreting biospheric values as a separate construct on their own since they provide unique variance in explaining pro-environmental behaviours De Groot and Steg.
