Abstract

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