Using an analytical approach this study deals with the change in behavior to protect environment by teaching ethics and environmental attitudes and values. The results of the study shows that the value judgments that form the foundation of environmental ethics have direct influence on human relation with environment and giving information on science without paying attention to environmental ethics and attitude has limited influence on environmental behavior. Therefore, in order to change values, attitudes and environmental behavior, it is necessary to pay attention to emotions.
