Abstract

The aim of the paper was to evaluate and compare the views of respondents from eastern Slovakia on selected environmental issues from a generational perspective. The study used an online questionnaire survey to collect the data. Based on the results, it is clear that the severity of environmental problems is perceived differently by each generation and in general, Generation Y gave them the highest priority and generation of Boomers the lowest priority. Based on the performed statistical testing, we can confirm a statistically significant difference between individual generations of respondents in the question of the positive impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the environment, but no statistically significant difference between individual generations of respondents and their attitude to whether they think that waste sorting and recycling reduces the amount of waste deposited in landfills or whether they think that waste sorting reduces the amount of waste deposited in landfills.
