Abstract

The article applies to the necessity of organizing continuous ecological education of specialists of railway enterprises and students of transport universities in the field of environmental management and auditing. The article presents the results of training and the survey of pilot advanced training courses participants on the program “Environmental management and the integration of the environmental auditing program in the corporate decision-making process”. It is noted that the academic curriculum was created on the basis of students’ requests and it was adjusted for foreign experience. Much interest had been generated by the topics reflecting the features of the environmental management implementation, environmental standards and procedures, the legal and legislative basis for protecting the environment. The article emphasizes that the innovative feature of these courses was the co-education of students and enterprise specialists. The article reveals the contents of a student environmental forum such as team-building training, public speaking, discussions, business games, decision-forcing cases and a photo contest. The effectiveness of ecological education and the development of environmental culture based on a combination of class and out-class training are shown in the article. The project contributed to developing motivation for environmentally oriented behavior among practitioners and students. The article presents the research results of the awareness level on the pollutant emissions and global climate change issues of ecological non-academic organizations representatives. International cooperation will continue on the basis of agreements between universities and the international ERASMUS+ programme cooperation.
