All around the world there is an ecological threat to people’s lives. Development of ecological competency of the future specialists must be taken into account under each specialist study. Today education defines the degree of wealth of any country, state existence, and also influences its economic development. Transition to “green” economics requires higher education systems to have ecologically competitive specialist. Today efficiency of ecological education in ecological problems solving is not enough. Under extraction of natural resources large reserves, the interest in ecological education decreases from year to year. Environmental problems are not being accepted by society as important enough though students recognize they belong to ecological problems and challenges. In this work the components of ecological competence and levels of its development are identified. So, transition to green economics requires development of ecological competence at all levels as well as formation of new competences. However this transition cannot be a bed of roses and thus poses a number of complexities here and there. Such complexity imbedded within the transition to green economics would require skills and knowledge, on one part, and a proper attitude and commitment on the other. This paper seeks to explore this process of transition and the challenges thereto.
