    correct?

    Hi,

    could you please tell me whether it is possible to say:

    Motivation for responsibility awareness OR Stimulation of responsibility awareness OR Stimulus to responsibility awareness OR something else?

    Thank you very much.

    Hanka, context is necessary.

    Responsibility awareness sounds very awkward to me (without a preceeding referent, like social/alcohol/child responsibility awareness and such like). Sense of responsibility, maybe? Could you provide the whole sentence?

    My two cents:

    motivation- pertains to the will to act / will to work / will to create.
    stimulation, on the other hand, deals with spurring on an initial effort

    Re: correct?

    Actually, it is not a sentence, just several points:

    Outdoor activities: additional input - motivation for responsibility awareness, motivation for further development, team building etc.

    Re: correct?

    and where´s the difference between "motivation of" and "motivation for"? I thought it is: motivation of somebody for something

    Re: correct?

    Some examples:

    1. the motivation of games - refers to the excitement that exists in playing games that makes you want to play them more

    2. the motivation for games - children have an intrinsic motivation for games (motivation to play games; it's not about the games, it's about an instinct)

    As far as motivation for/of in your example is concerned, I see things this way:

    1. motivation for (assuming) a certain responsibility

    2. (self)-motivation of responsibility - motivates/stimulates your already existing responsibility
