“We need a new environmental consciousness on a global basis. To do this, we need to educate people” — (Mikhail Gorbachev). The economic crisis forced to go in search of new perspectives. In fact the world is changing, the work becomes new way and the school, and in particular the University, must adapt to these changes. Especially in crisis time one of the key policy issues in advanced economies is the ease with which young people are able to make the transition from Higher Education to work The book is focused on “Land and water” and how the educational system must adapts by creating new courses and therefore new jobs.
One way is return back to nature, which must respect the environment, and from which it can find new resources. Today the ecological situation in Europe and in Russia, as well, is suffering due to an active but uncontrolled economic development. During the past years industrial production has increased, but today the unemployment rates increased in Europe and the possibility of creation a firm comes as an important way to add value to economy and to create jobs and new jobs, but also to return back to the traditional jobs as for example in “fishering” or “agriculture”. We need to adapt the Higher education to the global change, but we need also don’t forget the traditional jobs, for example the “fisherman”, the “farmer”. In a changing world, today they also need new forms of education.
