Abstract
The study assesses the perceived impact of climate change on student teachers in Nigerian tertiary institutions. The
study adopted descriptive survey research design. Two research questions guided the study while two hypotheses
were formulated and tested at 0.05 level of significance. The population of the study comprised of all the students of
2020/2021 final year Degree students of Alex Ekwueme Federal University and NCE students of Enugu State
College of Education (Technical). Purposive sampling technique was used to select one hundred and eighty (180)
students from both institutions. The instrument for data collection was a structured questionnaire titled
Questionnaire on Perceived Impact of Climate Change Teacher (QPICC). The questionnaire was structured by the
researchers and validated by two experts in Science Education and Measurement and Evaluation respectively. Data
collected were analyzed using mean and standard deviation to answer the research questions while t-test statistics
was used to test the null hypotheses. The findings revealed that student-teachers have adequate knowledge of cause,
impacts and solution of climate change respectively. The researchers recommended that climate change education be
introduced into the teacher training institutions and regular training and workshops be organized to update teachers’
knowledge on the causes, impacts and mitigation strategies on climate change.
