Every nation desires to achieve a state of development because of the benefit therein to be enjoyed

within and outside the state. Yet, many nations are undergoing the process of development because

of all that it entails for nation building and national development. The rapid societal transmission with

its positive and negative effects is enough of a scenario for the stimulation of global reorientation of

education and reduction of apathy especially in the developing world. Hence, this paper focused on

the Impact of Environmental Education to secondary education level. It also discussed Environmental

Education (EE) as a key to creating environmental consciousness/awareness, empowerment and

participation in decision-making regarding some of the world’s vital environmental issues and

challenges at secondary school level. Simple random sampling technique was adopted to select 400

respondents. Relevant data were collected using a self-made questionnaire titled “Environmental

Education Questionnaire” (EEQ). Two research hypotheses were formulated. The findings showed

that, there was no significant relationship among the respondents in their perception based on gender

and class level (JSS and SSS). Based on these findings, some specific recommendations were made

for implementation.
