This article deals with the important issue of environmental awareness amongst youth in times of climate crisis. Environmental awareness has been measured basing on the currently dominant division into anthropocentrism and biocentrism, the main two positions on the place of man in nature, the value of nature, including its moral significance and the assessment of human impact on environmental safety. The results come from surveys conducted in 2018 and 2019 in Poland (in the city of Bydgoszcz) on high school students (approximately 18 years old). The research presents young people’s opinions on environmental protection, the role of man in relation to nature (identified as biocentric or anthropocentric), and the threats associated with the climate crisis. We also analyse how environmental awareness is influenced by the content of media messages. Our results show that the surveyed students declare biocentric/anti-anthropocentric beliefs more often than anthropocentrism, and this tendency was reinforced by the growing presence of discussions surrounding climate change and related threats in public discourse.

Gloss to Judgement of the Supreme Court of 28 May 2021, file ref. no. III CZP 27/20

The glossed resolution has a significant impact on the catalogue of legal measures for environmental protection. Since the personal and collective dimensions of environmental protection are not in conflict, and the related private and public interests are based on a common value as the environment, seeking protection of individual rights threatened or violated as a result of environmental impact may constitute an important means of indirect legal protection of the environment and its resources, competitive to direct measures taken in the public interest. However, the reasoning of the Supreme Court indicated in the justification of the resolution raises certain doubts and may have significant consequences for the manner of interpretation of the provisions of the environmental protection law system.

Sustainable Development Goals: Priorities of Civil Aviation

The article is devoted to the analysis of current problems of international civil aviation, in particular, intensification of work in the program of global partnership in civil aviation to implement the UN document “Transforming our world: an agenda for sustainable development until 2030”, which defines 17 Sustainable Development Goals. This document envisages the involvement of all countries in the world to promote prosperity, protect the planet, ensure peace, eradicate poverty, so that by 2030 all people can live safely. The analysis of the influence of modern world trends on solving the problem of priorities of civil aviation in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, the study of Ukraine’s efforts to develop their provision in accordance with its own priorities and the problems of the world as a whole. The goals of sustainable development for the period up to 2030 are guidelines for the development of draft policy documents, draft regulations in order to ensure the balance of economic, social and environmental development of Ukraine. The technology of determining the priorities of international civil aviation is analyzed, taking into account the specifics of Ukraine’s development, set out in the National Report “Sustainable Development Goals: Ukraine”, as well as their compliance with international organizations. The measures proposed by the ICAO Council for the implementation of the priority goals of regional priority, proposals for setting priorities for sustainable development in new programs with the participation of member states of international and European civil aviation organizations are described. Topical issues of application of international standards of civil aviation, which testify to their effectiveness in improving approaches to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, are covered. However, despite the fact that the problems of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals are relevant, attract the attention of many international organizations, not many domestic researchers have tried to provide independent scientific justification for international civil aviation, provided by the final UN document. The development of domestic legislation, its gradual harmonization with international law, as well as regular ICAO recommendations, existing international and European standards in the field of civil aviation necessitate the emergence of new research in this area.

The European Union law and related regulations implement the conceptual framework of the sustainable development, that manifests itself as a compromise between the environmental protection and public space development, addressing the social and civilisational development. Amongst the regulations governing that issue, the ban on the advertising that encourages to act in the manner causing environmental protection hazards, is particularly interesting. The Polish law and related regulations ban to promote goods or services including the content that publicises the consumption model that is in contravention with the environmental protection policy and sustainable development policy, including but not limited to the advertising with the use of the wilderness for the purpose of promoting goods and service that have adverse impact upon the natural environment. Ecological organisations are entitled to lodge the petition to ban that kind of promotion within the framework of the civil law court procedure.

Selected Aspects of Environmental Protection in the Jurisprudence of Administrative Courts

The subject of the study is the analysis of selected rulings of administrative courts in environmental protection. The analysis of selected rulings of administrative courts justifies the inadequacies in the process of the application of environmental law by authorised public administration bodies due to the lack of the desired specialist knowledge of complex environmental processes. The issue of environmental protection is still important and topical both from the point of view of the state and individual entities. We can observe that the issues of environmental protection are the subject of research of various scientific disciplines, including natural, economic and social sciences. The aim of the conducted considerations is to show selected problems related to environmental protection in the perspective of the judicial activity of administrative courts in Poland.

This article highlights the involvement of Chinese dance theater in environmental protection. The author analyzes the ecological concepts of the work of three outstanding Chinese choreographers Yang Liping, Wang Yuanyuan, Tong Ruirui, whose works consistently embody the idea of the development of beautiful China, the ecological balance between human and nature, and the humankind’s adaptation to the new conditions of urban digital civilization. The purpose of the study is to investigate the existing experience of implementing Environmental themes in Chinese dance theater, as well as to outline the role of the Chinese ballet theater in the development of environmental consciousness. The research materials were the following stage works: “Pilgrimage to Lhasa”, “Two trees”, “Fire”, “Daughter of the country”, “Spirit of the Peacock”, “Romantic peacock”, “Echoes of Shangrila”, “Dynamic Yunnan”, “The Spirit of the Birds” (director and choreographer Yang Liping); “Haze” (director and choreographer Wang Yuanyuan); “Deep Memory”, “The World of Flowers”, “Then”, “The Earth”, “Goddess of Luo River”; ecological trilogy “Soaring Wings: Journey of the Crested Ibis”, “The Origin of the Big River”, “Deep AI You” (director and choreographer Tong Ruirui). The conclusions summarize the main characteristics of studied artists’ performances on environmental themes, as well as outline the prospects for further promotion of environmental awareness by means of dance theater. According to the author, the dance theater of China can continue to participate in environmental protection actively. The following forms of work turned out to be the most promising: further staging of choreographic performances on ecological topics, ecological production of the plays, open-air performances in natural areas and parks, original dance events in rural areas, choreographic open-air master classes, access to eco-responsible dance productions in online format, participation of ballet dancers in complex activities (ecological festivals, environmental photo sessions, media-programs or performances etc.).
