ABSTRACT
In this article we focused attention on the inhabitants'response to the environmental problems in Šalek Valley and Zasavje Region.We used a questionnaire to survey the answers of 1395 inhabitants in bothregions. The main aims of our study were following: to estimate thepollution severity and environmental conditions and to compare the answersbetween both. The inhabitants of the Šalek Valley are very critical towardtheir environment and they are basically satisfied with it (62,4 %). In theZasavje Region the inhabitants are less satisfied (39,5 %) with theirenvironment, because the pollution of their region is larger than averagein Slovenia.
