Abstract(s)Teaching of health and environmental knowledge in Finnish schools is guided by the national core curriculum and school curriculum. However, teaching practices are influenced to some extent also by teachers’ own conceptions and systems of values. The aim of the study was to survey Finnish pre- and in-service teachers’ conceptions concerning teaching of health and environmental knowledge as well as their attitudes and values related to environment. Teach-ers (n=312) appreciate and see their value at school in improving pupils’ behaviour. However, they point to a consistent lack of time or/and inadequate training. Teachers in general own positive attitudes towards the nature, although biologists seem to be more nature-centred compared to other teachers.
