Much has been written about ecological education, the term is associated with both sustainable development and the current principles of the Information and Knowledge Society. At the same time, proenvironmental education is intensely focused on developing the personality of today's students, the future active citizens of the community. In this sense, to show that the concern for the implementation and adoption of ecological education in the Romanian education system is a special one, we chose to synthesize and present a series of opinions, of those with concerns in the field, regarding the role and importance of education. ecological for the individual and implicitly for the community. Starting from the international level, where bodies such as the EU, UNESCO, UNEP, and FEM promote this approach, we came to interpret the vision of the Romanian education system, which more and more often, lately, transposes the principles of ecology applied in schools and communities. Also, the documentation of the study is based on papers and opinions from 2018-2021, associated with the activities of teachers, especially those in the pre-university environment. The summary of these interpretations and opinions shows that although environmental education still has a long way to go at the national level compared to other EU countries, there are still a lot of people and projects that support environmental education. All these elements show that we need such training, in the spirit of sustainable development of communities and in the harmonious development of the young generations of digital citizens.
