Environmental attitude as a mediator of the relationship between psychological restoration in nature and self-reported ecological behavior

AbstractEnvironmental attitude and ecological behavior were investigated in relation to the use of nature for psychological restoration. Specifically, with sur- vey data from 468 German university students, the role of environmental attitude was investigated as a mediator of the restoration-behavior relationship. Assuming that positive experiences in nature can have a broad influence on environmental attitudes, the New Ecological Paradigm (NEP) scale, an attitudinal measure with broad scope, was adopted. Hierarchical regression analyses indicated partial me- diation by environmental concern. The study helps to consolidate the restoration theme in the growing literature on positive motivations for ecological behavior.
