The purpose of the study is to prove the environmentally responsible behaviors of primary, secondary and university students in Turkey. The students’, who attended the study as participants, environmentally political behaviors, consumer/economical behaviors, direct behaviors toward protecting the environment and individual and public persuasion behaviors about environmentally issues are examined considering variances of their educational levels, genders and grades. This research is based upon 2219 students who have been studying in state primary and secondary schools and Siirt University in the city of Siirt, Turkey. The data was conducted using “environmental responsible behavior scale” developed by Erdoğan (2009). Results indicated that while primary, secondary and university students’ direct behaviors toward protecting environment has the highest average score, their political behaviors toward protecting environment has the lowest average score. It was found that there is a statically significant difference between the students’ direct behaviors toward protecting the environment, consumer/economical behaviors and inducing behaviors about environmentally issues.
