Youth and Environmental Education for Sustainable Development

Tatjana Borojevic, Natasa B Petrovic, Drago Vuk

New political frameworks and courses of development regarding the welfare of the young are more and more being directed towards platforms for involving young people in the issues of environmental protection and sustainable development. However, despite the dedication of political decisions on consulting young people and their participation in these issues, still, there is no consensus on the way and implementation of this dedication, and on the manner of implementation in various program fields. This paper is giving frameworks for understanding the need for the adequate environmental education of the young people, which, as a consequence, also has the sustainable development of the society as a whole. The first one refers to the argument that young people have the right to be involved in and consulted on the environmental issues. The second one is that improvement of the services for young people requires recognition of their views and interests and their appropriate articulation, which is implied from the standpoint of their participation. The third one refers to the needs of recognition and involvement of the benefits of the sustainable growth, which normally arise as a consequence of the participation of the young people in the protection of the environment. Finally, it is concluded that young people should be given a chance to be involved in the appropriate environmental education and discussions on economic, societal and environmental issues, having in mind that participation of the public in the environmental protection issues cannot be reserved just for the adults.
