Sustainable Development (SD) is one of today’s most often discussed issues. It refers living to in harmony with the natural environment as well as with the responsibility for the fate of future generations. The international community makes an effort to teach institutions, organizations and individuals how disastrous their activity can be for the environment. In particular universities, qualified to promote knowledge and to build a sensible society, are under obligation to disseminate the right ideas. They should teach how to manage the environment in the right way and how to manage organizations according to SD. Finally, they have to undertake work, even if such activity encounters resistance. Working in respect to the natural environment seems to be the only admissible direction of further development.
