The paper deals with a more efficient system of education relevant to environmental protection. The importance of environmental education and politics in contemporary society faced by environmental problems, is beyond doubt. Environmental education is needed to raise awareness among young people to ensure care for the environment. The relationship of people to nature is a hot topic, and if young people have sufficient knowledge and information, they can understand the issues and are able to change their environmental behaviour. It is necessary to influence and contribute to the development of the environmental feelings of young people to their behaviour and actions to assist the sustainable development of society. Education in the environment can be performed in various ways. It is important to find the right way to do addressed young people and to be willing to perceive this issue. Environmental studies as a separate subject is taught mainly at secondary level of technical education. Young people perceive problems, environmental education in schools does not devote enough time. They know mostly about the problems concern waste separation and naming global problems. This contribution describes a survey among young people and also proposes possible effective ways to increase environmental awareness.
