Abstract [en]

In this study we investigate how trust in the state and value orientations among Swedish students (N = 1 923) are related to their attitudes to different environmental policy instruments. A questionnaire with items measuring i) altruistic, biospheric and egoistic value orientation, ii) trust in the state, and iii) attitudes to environmental taxes, regulations and subsidies was answered by the students in the very beginning of their education. Statistical analyses revealed that biospheric value orientation was the strongest predictor of positive attitudes to all environmental policy instruments, but also, which we believe is important to highlight, that trust in the state is a moderating the effect of biospheric value orientation on the level of support for environmental policy instruments. These findings underline that addressing societal trust may be an important aspect of environmental education.
