    Abstract

    “Light pollution of the environment is the emission of light which increases the natural illumination of the environment and causes disturbing illumination and the feeling of glare for the human sight” (Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning, 2018). The increase of the artificial illumination is connected with the development of industry, the increase of economic well-being, and the growth of the population. It also causes some negative influences on people, animals, and plants from the perspective of the protection of health and also the consumption of the money (economic perspective). Because of the awareness of the destroyed balance between the light and the dark part of the day, numerous recommendations and pieces of advice have been issued to diminish artificial illumination in the household and of public surfaces and buildings. The goal of the master’s thesis was to research the awareness, attitudes, and knowledge of the consequences of the light pollution among the students of the elementary school. The descriptive and the causal non-experimental methods have been used. The data was acquired by means of the survey questionnaire. The research was performed on the pattern of 100 students in the ninth grade. The results showed that there are no significant differences in knowing the influences and consequences of light pollution between the students who come from the villages and from the city. The students realize that the excessive artificial light has also negative consequences for plants, animals, and people. The results also showed that the students did not discuss the studied contents within the subject of housekeeping. Therefore, I believe that it would make sense to pay more attention to this content. It would make sense to organize education for the teachers where they could learn about the directives and get the ideas to introduce the mentioned content into the lessons of the subject of housekeeping.
