Learning for sustainable development occurs in a range of learning environments that can be formal, non-formal and informal in nature and is a process that continues lifelong. Lifelong learning is defined as „All learning activity undertaken throughout life, with the aim of improving knowledge, skills and competence, within a personal, civil, social and/or employment-related perspective“. There have been several recent initiatives designed aimed at encouraging dialogue between universities, working in the field of lifelong learning and education for sustainable development, and companies. For such purpose it is necessary to produce a strategic document setting a clear concept of lifelong learning and vision of sustainable development. For sustainable development to retain any use for lifelong learning, it must take seriously the problem of ecological sustainability. Ecological sustainability recognizes that human society and economy is both part of, and interacting with an ecological context on which society is dependent for resources and maintenance of life. Ecological sustainability of plastic materials, it was our goal, namely to reduce waste generation and resource consumption in production processes. The integration of environment and development concerns and greater attention to them leads to improved living standards for all, fulfilling basic needs, better protected and managed ecosystems and a safer, more prosperous future global partnership for development of sustainable technologies.
Key words: development of sustainable technologies, lifelong learning, ecological sustainability of plastic materials
