ABSTRACT
In this study, pre-service science teachers' opinions about the concept of the ecological footprint were investigated before and after activities about sustainable life and their ecological footprints were calculated. A total of 49 pre-service science teachers (31 male, 18 female) who attend third class in the science education department participated in this study. In the research, qualitative and quantitative research methods were used. After the sustainable life education, it was observed that the pre-service science teachers' awareness of ecological footprint raised and their visions for the future developed.
