Résumé
For a long period of time people have acted as if the natural resources were unlimited, exploiting them in an irrational manner. This pillage attitude of our society has produced a shortage of natural resources in our planet and a deterioration of our life quality. The air, water and earth pollutions are consequences of the so called progress and technological development. Water, even being a renewable resource, is being impoverished. This is why in this report we focus on "the use, consumption and management of the water". The present work aims to know the representations and attitudes that the students have towards the water, its management, and its importance in the process of a sustainable development An initial questionnaire and an interview was used to contrast our first hypothesis : "The students do not have an adequate representation of the meaning of water for life on Earth, they do not give to the water the value it has in our lives, and do not appreciate the necessity of a sustainable development as the only way of controlling and improving the environmental problematic situation". After the first results, we designed an adequate classroom work to improve knowledge, attitudes and behaviours that led us to the following hypothesis : "The representation and development of a didactic unit for the students, presenting the water problem in a context of sustainable development, can promote a conceptual and attitudinal change towards the rational use of the water". To contrast this new hypothesis we elaborated the didactic unit, WATER !, with the appropriate characteristics to promote a conceptual and attitudinal change in the students. We used this didactic unit in four different centres and with different levels of study, after what the students filled in a final questionnaire that allowed the evaluation of the effectiveness of this didactic unit comparing the results with the initial questionnaires and with a control group that did not work with the didactic unit. In this PhD we expose the results and conclusions of the experiments undertaken and we make available the unit
