Learning objectives:
  Knowledge of the roots of ecological problems, of relationship between ethos, ecology and technology, and of improving the quality of professional decision-making through introducing ecological aspects.
  One of the indispensable conditions of human life on the Earth is a friendly environment. Since the human race started reproduction on the Earth, deep interventions into eco-systems have been observed. The gravity of such interventions is proportional to the increasing use of technologies. In the sphere of environmentalists´studies and attitudes, however, a lot of clashing approaches, research methods and interests can be observed. Therefore, adequate professional and highly qualified insight is most advisable here.
