ABSTRACT
Regardless the country we are coming from, the environment condition depends on each individual, directly influencing our health and life. Because some of us don’t consider this aspect is important and don’t understand the fact that they have to become more responsible in order to live in a clean environment and to breathe a clean air, we realized a study concerning the environment and the involvement of the population in the environment problems. The research was done in Timisoara city, located in the Western part of Romania, a city with large number of inhabitants and where the economy development is a priority and because of the intense human activities the environment has to suffer. The research method we used is the sociological survey, and the information was obtained through a questionnaire applied on a sample of 200 persons. The study proposes the awareness and involvement of the population in taking measures to protect the environment, because it is only human’s power to take efficient measures and to find solutions to prevent this harmful process. The managers and the population should be focused on the environment protection and to take the necessary measures in order to develop a pro-ecological behavior.
