Artem Alexandrovich Fortunatov, the candidate of pedagogical science, senior lecturer, Institute of pedagogy and psychology of education, Moscow City University

Introduction – the article is devoted to the analysis of theoretical and empirical materials devoted to the problem of subjective attitude of University students, who grew up in urban and rural environments, to the natural environment. The main aim of the study is to examining the influence of the student's lifestyle on the formation of their subjective attitude to nature. The methodology and organization of the study. Identification of the features of their relationship to the natural environment is based on the diagnostic complex "Test of ecological consciousness", developed in the laboratory of environmental development of the Institute of psychology of REA, under the direction of V.I. Panov. This test allows us to identify the ecocentric and anthropocentric type of environmental consciousness of students, as well as to assess the severity of the components of their lifestyle. Conclusions The subjective attitude of University students who grew up in the city differs from that of students who grew up in the countryside. This difference is based on better awareness of "urban" students about environmental problems of the natural environment, as well as the implementation of more effective environmental education and environmental protection activities in the urban environment.
