Since the solution of global environmental problems is still an unresolved task, in this direction, in our opinion, there are great prospects for environmental diplomacy. Attraction of positively thinking youth allows creating conditions for the transformation of human attitudes towards environmental problems, responsibility for the destruction of the biosystem, and joining efforts in the fight against environmental problems. The activity, determination and success of the youth movement give hope, strength and faith in the future to us – the inhabitants of planet Earth. The specifics of our UNESCO Chair work lies in the emphasis on applied scientific research of a technical nature within the framework of such sustainable development goals. Particular attention is paid to regional and international Youth Environmental Projects as mechanisms for preparing responsible young people for our joint future beyond borders and races, creating all conditions for the implementation of ideas about future safe cities for the lives of our children and all future generations.
