Ecologism as a Modern Strategy of Human Survival (Regional and Global Dimensions)


Keywords: ecology, еcologism, ecological education, upbringing, globalism, global problems of our time

Abstract

The aim of this article is to reveal the ecological education’s perspectives at the present stage of the globalization processes’ deployment and their influence on the formation of the environmental consciousness of both an individual and the society as a whole. A wide variety of methods were used in the research, in particular, general scientific, special scientific and philosophical methods and approaches, including structural and functional analysis, synthesis, comparative, systemic, as well as synergetic approach, which allowed considering education as a complex and opening system. The authors have proved that theorganization of the ecological education is important at all levels of an individual’s socialization, especially in the process of enculturation. The individual simultaneously forms responsibility for his or her actions at the local level (within the city, region, or state) as well as on the planetary scale, as the modern humankind faces global ecological problems, which cannot be solved by a separate society. Thus, humankind has already developed appropriate protocols and activity programs, but that is not enough for today. Therefore, the authors of this research claim that only carefully considered approaches to education and upbringing are the ways that enable real solving of the global problems instead of declarative attitude to them. The authors attempted to substantiate the need to organize the environmental education and upbringing at all levels of an individual’s socialization in the context of modern globalization processes.The research results can serve as guide marks for improving ecological education, both at the state programs level and at the supranational level.
