Introduction of resource-saving principles and transition to a Green economy today among the country’s priority national tasks. Particular focus on ecological education and upbringing involving a constructive dialogue between generations: through conversations between school pupils and ecology and environmental protection policy-makers setting the most urgent ideas of the day. The next generation must grow up aware of the finite nature of natural resources, understand the new challenges facing humanity, and foster their own care for and rational relationship with Nature.
