The study used theoretical, empirical and data processing methods (Pearson's correlation coefficient). Based on the analysis of the psychological literature of native and foreign researchers, the essence of the concept of "emotional regulation", "environmental strategies for managing emotions" within environmental psychology is clarified. The study of strategies for regulating students’ emotions, in order to determine the frequency of use of constructive (environmental) strategies for emotional regulation to maintain environmentally oriented life. Features of strategies of students’ emotional regulation through the level of formation of cognitive components of emotional regulation, features of control over emotions, intensity and frequency of use of certain styles of protection against affective situations are revealed. The psychological features of constructive and destructive strategies of emotion regulation are described, the peculiarities of their connection with behavioral strategies and personal styles of the subject's reaction to an emotional situation are determined. The results of the experimental study allowed us to conclude that young men and women in stressful situations prefer constructive strategies to regulate emotions, which help to find solutions, manage a difficult situation and cope with its consequences. The use of destructive strategies in coping with stressful situations leads to negative experiences, the strength and duration of which depend on the context of the situation. However, destructive experiences prevent young people from maintaining an environmentally oriented life.
