  • An individual's perceptions about his or her surrounding environment (also known as environmental geography). This view is concerned with subjective rather than objective reality, as it is the perception that serves as the focal point. Environmental geographers are concerned with how perceptions are formed and how they influence an individual's decision-making process. Environmental activism gained momentum in the late 1960s and provided an impetus for the close study of environmental geography. Using human attitudes and responses to natural hazards has become a popular method for developing environmental impact assessments. Studies involving environmental perception have become an important and well-recognized method for developing environmental policies.
