Abstract

It seems logical to stimulate the young generation’s wish to protect and love nature. The negative outcomes for today’s natural environment such as soil pollution, animate and inanimate nature devastation etc. can be clearly noticed. Due to computers, robots and various kinds of technologies, humans have virtually lost their interrelation with nature. Our inability to kindly interact with nature can be treated as an obvious result of unacceptable behaviour. Consequently, ecology-based education is a crucial aspect of socialisation and has an enormous influence on the young generation, because a modern society is deeply influenced by the approach to nature, the natural environment and behaviour towards it. However, we must understand modern human manners of interaction with nature and the ways affecting behaviour. The authors agree that only in-depth assessment of the mechanisms of interaction with nature can provide opportunities to apply the means of educational correction when training the young generation. The article deals with the characteristics of the learners’ (forms 5 to 12) interaction with nature in terms of behavioural situations.
