The article analyzes the assessment of the ecological state of the territory by its population in a small town to study the state of public environmental awareness. According to official data, the city of Yelets and the Lipetsk region in general face a significant number of unresolved environmental problems against the background of a quite stable ecological situation. Given the general complex ecological situation in the region, the assessment of the ecological situation in specific settlements, rooted in the local agenda, can be radically different. This allows us to speak about the primary attention of the population to their local place of residence and the problems they face directly. The involvement of the population in the activities to preserve the environment of the region as a whole requires promoting public environmental awareness through a competent environmental policy by state and municipal authorities.
