Environmental education aims to rethink the relationship between human beings and nature. It is the most effective tool to generate change towards improving the environment and sustainable development. The university environment is emerging as the ideal context to establish an environmental education that promotes the training of professionals responsible for the environment and sustainable development. In this case, the work aims at exploring the perception of Peruvian university students regarding environmental problems both at the local and national levels. To do this, a survey was conducted of 714 university students of different ages, from different locations and university careers.
