Abstract

Environmental sustainability is a very important issue today because it is related to the continuity of human life on earth. Various studies have proven that the current ecological crisis has caused the existence of the environment to be significantly threatened. In the Islamic perspective, the ecological crisis is basically related to spiritual crisis. The objective of this study is to analyse the influence the level of religiosity to eco-literacy and environmental concern towards ecologically conscious behaviour among Moslem Society in Indonesia. This explationary research tries to explore the causal relationship between variables through hypothesis testing, by collecting data from 210 respondents through a questionnaire. Structural equation modelling (SEM) was used to test the influence of three levels of religiosities-Islam, Faith, Ihsan-to the mediating variable: eco-literacy and environmental concern, and then how does this mediating variable affect the ecologically conscious behaviour. The findings suggest that religiosity can play an important role in determining ecologically conscious behaviour among Muslim society in Indonesia.
