Environmental education is an important context in which to learn about the environment, as well as science—biology, geology, nature—and numerous interdisciplinary, or hybrid fields. Environmental education involves the broad study of changes in earth systems and environmental systems over time.

Related school to college curricula are directed at increasing students' environmental knowledge and awareness and their overall environmental literacy—knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors—related to the environment. In this paper an attempt has been made to study the awareness and attitude of college students towards environment and related issues. To study this phenomena survey method has been used. The study was conducted on 160 students (80 girls and 80 boys). The students were randomly selected from different colleges of Karimnagar district of Telangana. For the purpose of data collection environmental attitude scale and environmental awareness tests were administered on them. The data was collected personally from the colleges.
