Summary/Abstract: Pope Francis' encyclical letter Laudato si’ identifies philosophical reasons of ecologic-sociological crisis and reveals those who are responsible for it. One of the basic aims of the conference and of this article is to reflect what has been done in environment in the Slovak republic and in the world in the past year. Article analyses achieved changes in environment from the national and international point of view. Special attention is dedicated to the World Climate Summit in Paris. From the international point of view, the 70th anniversary of UNESCO is key because this organization directly relates to environment. Reflection on internal changes in environment is oriented towards substantial legislation changes which have been passed or are being prepared, i.e. law on wastes, law on environmental impact assessment, etc.
