ABSTRACT
A crisis is an essential attribute of a functioning system. Growth of consumption and production underlying it has its logical continuation in a recession that provokes socio-economic, ethical and political problems. The further development of a system within the frameworks of the present value paradigm gives birth to a threat of a global ecological disaster. The sustainable development concept, offered as an alternative, is capable of solving emergent problems of civilization. However, the development of green technologies and introduction of environmentally sustainable economy are insufficient when there is no public consciousness relevant to sustainable development.
