Awareness level of rural communities on the green technology and its relationship. International Journal of Information System and Engineering, 5 (2). pp. 1-17. ISSN 2289-7615 (2017)


The objective of this study is to analyse the level of awareness among rural communities on the green technology. A total of 108 out of 178 households of Kampung Jalan Gula, Taiping, Perak were selected as respondents using a purposive sampling method in 2017 based on [25]. However, only 100 questionnaires have been returned and 8 questionnaires were considered as unresponsive. Information was collected using a questionnaire filled by respondents themselves. The data obtained was analysed by using 'SPSS for Windows'. Less than 20% of respondents have a high level of awareness on the green technology but the attitudes towards green technology among respondents are low especially those aged 50 years and above. It shown that elderly has less interest to concern about advantages of green technology, even though they have completed their secondary school education. Further analysis found positive and significant relationships between awareness levels to Knowledge, Comprehension and Attitudes. Knowledge and Comprehension related to the green technology should be given a very high emphasis on rural communities particularly for elderly in order to protect the environment. This study suggests that all parties should play their respective roles including current elderly as well as future elderly who live in rural or urban area in achieving environmental sustainability
