Modern socio-economic factors offer increasingly convenient living conditions to members of well-developed societies. According to scholars in the field of social, economic and environmental order, the development is accompanied by several undesirable actions of individuals and social groups. In light of sustainable development, education has become one of the most pressing social challenges. Sustainable education ought to be pursued on each education level. The development of attitudes of students graduating from universities and embarking on their careers is of particular significance in this context.

The subject matter of the paper pertains to attitudes towards sustainable development and pro-ecological education of students representing selected universities in Lublin. The objective of the study was to identify and examine the students’ interest in the subject of sustainable development and ecology as well as initiatives undertaken in order to improve competences in these fields. The sample consisted of students of management. Such students will prospectively be employed as managers or become entrepreneurs, and thus, will assume responsibility for establishing directions organizations will follow.

Empirical studies were conducted by means of a diagnostic poll with the application of a random survey. The survey was carried out in 2017 among the students of management at two state universities in Lublin- Maria Curie Skłodowska University (MCSU) and Lublin University of Technology (LUT). Due to the fact that the objective of the study was associated with learning students’ opinions on sustainable development and pro-ecological initiatives, the questionnaire addressed students graduating from undergraduate and graduate studies.

Research results revealed several factors determining the development of environmental awareness and emergence of sustainable development. These encompass e.g. sex, grade point average, respondents’ occupational situation. The results served as a basis for formulating practical recommendations pertaining to the development of competences regarding sustainable development and awareness as well as pro-ecological initiatives.
