Behavior of Sustainable Waste Management in Biology Teacher Candidates
Sustainable waste management behavior is an effort to overcome the problem of waste in the environment. Student-teacher candidates, especially prospective biology teachers, need to have positive attitudes about sustainable waste management because they will be role models for their students in the future. This study aims to describe the behavior of sustainable waste management in biology teacher candidates. The method used in this research is a survey. The respondents involved were 46 biology education students who had taken Basic Ecology courses. Data was collected through survey questionnaires with a Likert scale and analyzed descriptively. The results showed the behavior of sustainable waste management in prospective biology teacher students at KH. A. Wahab Hasbullah University is included in the good category. This is supported by the results of a self-assessment regarding the threats posed by waste and efforts to overcome them, which are also included in the good category. Sustainable waste management behavior and self-assessment influence each other.
