Self-determination of the student in the system “biosphere – society – personality” and transfer of the ideal model of this relationship to the sphere of his own life activity constitute the essence of the ecological culture.
Formation of the ecological culture represents a process of consistent acquisition by a student of ecological knowledge, skills, habits, development of his personal views and beliefs on the environmental problems, critical perception, emotional experience, awareness of the role of his personality in the solution of the ecological problems, the necessity in the ecologically appropriate behavior in the environment. The levels of the development of ecological culture are characterized by such criteria as responsibility for the behavior in nature, presence of the system of ecological knowledge, skills, habits, need for active ecologically appropriate activity in any living conditions. According to these criteria different levels of the development of ecological culture of the student are distinguished: low, medium, high.
