Abstract

Nowadays people begin to recognize that there are problems in our environment and they must do something about it. The purpose of this paper is to presents the most important environmental problems without a priority order. For example, we have to provide the required energy, drinking water and adequate food as well to ensure the livable environment for everyone. In order to solve these problems, it is important to understand that we have to examine them as a coherent system. Environmental education is a good opportunity to spread this mindset among students of all ages. In the second half of this study education methods are presented where environmental problems can be effectively addressed in pedagogical practice. The paper argues that environmental education is the first step to solve and to prevent aforementioned global environmental issues.
