Participants of the conference received a greeting letter written by His Beatitude Sviatoslav, Head and Father of the UGCC.
“You put a noble aim before you”, he mentioned – to discuss achievements of sustainable development regarding Ukrainian society. An analysis you wish to conduct, you link to important questions of spirituality and ecological directions in education and upbringing. An event you called is also important concerning the process of reforms, which are being conducted in different spheres of life and function of our country, particularly in the world. Precisely, values of good, beauty and truth will manage to encourage the flow of reforms into a constitutive and fruitful direction. I hope that your scientific work will facilitate it”.
Head of the UGCC also mentioned: “The Lord created a man as the crown of His creation. In His creation he is called to be an icon of the Creator, the governor of the created world so to ensure its balanced development. Besides existence of people and the number of people on the planet, a way of life and predatory look of a modern civilization make a man a cause and, simultaneously, a victim of current ecological crisis, which is taking on globally”.
