Abstract

The primary purpose of this research is to test the hypothesis that despite higher willingness to live a pro-environmentally lifestyle it does not reflect on the behaviour of individuals. This research examines the various internal factors like awareness of the issue, knowledge and willingness, etc., as well as external factors like leadership and policy to identify the influence to lead pro-environment behaviour (especially in the reference of Energy and Electricity consumption) among students, faculty, and staff at California State University San Bernardino (CSUSB). The research methodology used is a quantitative survey research design. It utilizes correlation of data, received from an electronic survey sent to students, faculty, and staff of CSUSB via email. The secondary method of collecting the data is by a personal interview questionnaire. Questionnaires for this survey contain 19 questions including standard demographic questions, behavioural questions, and preference questions to find out the best possible way to inspire the pro-environmental lifestyle in reference to electricity consumption. We will use random sampling to collect our data and use statistical software to analyse the data. Our finding will highlight underlying factors about how we can design and implement policies and/ or campaign at CSUSB to influence pro-environment behaviour among the students, faculty, and staff.
