Summary/Abstract: Health education and health-promoting behaviors are significant elements of the social pillar, economic and natural sustainability. The results of pedagogical observation of pupils’ health behaviors, as well as conclusions related to accomplishment of the principles of health education at 75 junior high schools and 30 high schools are presented in the paper. The analysis of observations and curricula were supplemented by interviews with the 150 second year master degree biology students who had participated in this study as observers. On that basis the diagnosis of the current situation and proposals for action to raise awareness of students in the field of sustainable development were made. Results of the research showed that community, parents and non-formal education institutions should develop students’ beliefs that the functioning of the human body depends on the actions taken by the man to influence the improvement of their health, and school is the main area of the ESD implementation.
