Ecologic problems in the living environment
Although attitudes concerning ecological quality are impressively increasing in cities, as well as in the countryside, it is more apparent in the latter. Generally, the share of ecologically endangered areas is larger in cities, but their growth is greater in the countryside, which is alarming. Rapid increase in ecological consciousness of the population has been noted and also more defined criteria for environmental quality. Differences in the answers of the population between 1984 and 1991 prove an increase in latent ecologic and not necessarily manifestative consciousness, which ensures the preparedness of the population for action.
