This article is a contribution to the current debate about the nature and content of geography teaching It challenges the notion that the study of attitudes and values in geographical education imposes values upon the learners. it shows bow ethnograpbic methodology developed from the existing geographical concept of the behavioural environment, which emphasised the importance of studying attitudes and values. it demonstrates a more nuanced approach to e understanding of people-environment relations using an ethnograpbic case study of management issues in a wetland environment at Lake Kerkini in Greece. By using direct evidence from the people involved, ethnographic studies allow students to access information about and consider the significance of attitudes and values in different cultural environments.
