Sustainable development and the homo sovieticus syndrome

Anna Kasperowicz

Abstract

Implementation of the concept of sustainable development requires action first at the local, and then at global level. The effectiveness of local action depends on the actions of individual units. The possibility of achieving this concept depends on the awareness of people involved in this enterprise. This state is a set of features called homo cooperativus, which evolved from homo oeconmicus. In Polish conditions, the way to achieve the desired state of consciousness is more complex. It is associated with the remnants of the old system in the minds of people, which is called a homo sovieticus syndrome. The path of evolution from homo sovieticus to homo cooperatives can run two ways; with the achievement of the intermediate state which is homo oecnomicus, or without it. The other way is possible under certain conditions.
