Planetary environmental crisis – social and existential dimensions

The concept of sustainable development is the subject of research in various disciplines in the social sciences, including economics, sociology and legal sciences. The prepared lectures will briefly present the genesis of the concept of sustainable development. It will be pointed out that the idea of sustainable development emerged as early as the 1960s as an attempt to answer questions about threats related to the dynamic development of the economy of Western countries, depletion of non-renewable natural resources, pollution of the natural environment, rapid demographic growth, and deepening differences between the Global North and the Global South. Contemporary concepts of sustainable development will also be presented and discussed (including the so-called narrow understanding of sustainable development identified with eco-development and the broad understanding of sustainable development defined as a new paradigm of development, promoting a new vision of integrated order). In turn, during the workshop, students will try to find an answer to the question of how knowledge about the functioning of the human mind can be used to promote pro-environmental behaviour. During the workshop, we will look at exactly how this can be done - so that more people engage in actions to protect nature individually and collectively.
