It seems to be rational way to use today’s clues in future plans especially in vital matters which are the problems that are not resolved that can be solved in the near or medium term. The fact that the segments which form of the society having different views, socio-economic status, culture accumulation and behaviors bring back the differences in the way of solution of the problems. The most educated, most conscious part of near future is the younger generation that is studying in today’s university. In this frame, precautions already taken for today’s well-educated individuals and the right policy options for the future with viable conditions are presented to university students. This study seeks the trends of today's young and well-educated youth in the environmental impacts of the agricultural and industrial sectors. The study carried out in the province of İzmir, young people selected as the target group consist of undergraduate students of Ege University. Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) was used in the study to determine the trends of the youth for the environmental impacts of the agricultural and industrial sectors. According to young people, the most important role in environmental pollution is the industry sector with degree of impact 0.743. The agricultural sector with 0.257 is less effective in environmental pollution. In the planned AHP for this study; the agricultural and industrial sectors has been tried to determine their role in this pollution in terms of environmental pollution from soil, water and air pollution which are more important. According to this, when the students rate the effects of sectors on pollution factors, while the agricultural sector was effective on soil pollution (0.378) and water pollution (0.344), the industry sector was significantly affected the air pollution (0.444)
