Abstract

© 2018, © 2018 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. This study evaluates environmental service-learning in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in relation to demographic variables and students' characteristics. A diverse group of school and community sites were recruited. Statistical analysis was performed between the final attitude index scores and demographic variables. UAE citizens were found to have a more positive attitude toward the environment than others. Educational level and age were also significantly associated with final attitude index scores. Participants aged 18–22 years scored significantly higher (p < 0.003) than those who were younger than 18 years and older than 22 years.
