Attitude-behaviour gap in sustainable fashion consumption
Vrabcová, Johanna ; Richter, Eva (advisor) ; Skovajsa, Marek (referee)
In today's fast-paced world, it is no surprise that fast fashion has come to the forefront of consumer behaviour in the fashion industry. Fast fashion, with its huge overproduction makes the fashion industry the second largest polluter of the environment. Sustainable consumption, which is environmentally friendly and therefore offers several solutions to today's distressing situation, contrasts with today's fashion consumption. In connection with this fact, the aim of my bachelor thesis was to describe and explain the causes that lead to the discrepancy between pro-environmental attitudes and inconsistent behaviour, in other words, the existence of attitude-behaviour gap in the fashion industry. Through the method of synthesis of the scientific literature and a number of research studies, are described theoretically substantiated the barriers that are described by the respondents in the research studies as the main causes of their unsustainable consumption behaviour. Apart from the barriers, several possible solutions are explained in response to these causes. One of the main findings of this work is to emphasize the fact that examining the relationship between attitude, intention, and behavior in addressing the attitude-behaviour gap can be problematic, because social factors such as social...

Gardianova, Tereza ; Richter, Eva (advisor) ; Skovajsa, Marek (referee)
of Diploma Thesis Abstract: The master thesis deals with the loneliness of university students (focused on women) during the pandemic of the COVID-19 disease. The work focuses on the identification of risk and protective factors of loneliness. It also examines coping strategies and compares their use between lonely and non-lonely students. The qualitative study identified risk factors associated with the pandemic (disruption of routine and everyday life, absence of university environment and reduction of social network and social contacts) and general risk/protective factors (social, personal, family environment, physical activity and nature). Coping strategies for university students are prevailed active, problem-oriented strategies. However, emotional strategies also appear during crisis situations. Passive coping strategies predominate among long-term lonely students. The main difference between lonely and non-lonely students was connected with the perception of loneliness. Non-Lonely students took loneliness as a means of self- development and personal growth. Based on the findings, a typology of loneliness was created.

Citizenship - Theoretical Bases and Teaching Practice
Bucvanová, Eliška ; Moree, Dana (advisor) ; Skovajsa, Marek (referee)
Eliška Bucvanová. Diplomová práce. Citizenship - Theoretical Bases and Teaching Practice ABSTRACT IN ENGLISH Weak civil society can be seen as a possible drawback of Czech democracy. One of the possible ways of building it is citizenship education provided within the compulsory school system. Citizenship is also the main subject of this work, which uses qualitative research methods to find out how the concept of "citizenship" is understood by teachers at a selected primary school, what information they provide to pupils on this subject and how. Since the scope of the paper would be insufficient, it does not intend to map the state of citizenship education in the Czech Republic: its aim is to find out how teachers approach the subject and whether their opinions coincide, and to compare their views with the information contained in literature. The results of the work show that the selected school is at a comparatively high level; however, the teachers' attitudes to citizenship education and its aims lack consistency and comprehensiveness and, also, the pupils' knowledge highly varies. This can be due to the fact that citizenship education has long been in need of an integrated approach and, very probably, also training opportunities for teachers that would help them develop their professional skills. In...
