The study aimed at increasing women's environmental awareness by a training program. A test questionnaire was developed to establish women's knowledge level. Before training, tests were completed by participants. Afterwards, a training program covering environmental information and issues was applied. The tests were administered again following the training to determine effectiveness. SPSS 11.5 was used in analyzing the data. To determine percentage and frequency values, test grades scored by women before and after the training were calculated, and T-test was applied. The results indicated women's knowledge level about the environment, causes and effects of environmental issues significantly increased. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved
