In the era of climate change and the need for closer contact with nature for the population of urban agglomerations, modern cities modernize their development strategies, designing new and supplementing existing urban layouts with plant forms. A good solution to the current urban problems is to create spaces that are filled with greenery, while maintaining the value of the existing historical values.The aim of the study is to present the possibility of supplementing the existing composition of the historic town square with various plant forms, on the example of the Gorlice.

Consumerism is a very important issue today because of its exponential growth and its
influence on the environment. Because of this, numerous movements have appeared that try
to focus on slowing down the ecosystems transformation, such as green consumerism. It is
very important to recognise the right green behaviour and to know the recommendations for
the future in order to improve the present situation. The opinion of young people studying
biology may give us some clues about the thinking of slowing consumption. The paper also
gives an opinion of scientists’ way of thinking of this.

Sustainable food logistics and industry 4.0 technologies

DOI: 10.15584/pjsd.2022.26.1.5

Sustainable development of logistics in the food industry requires the implementation of Industry 4.0 technologies. These technologies will help improve efficiency with the maintenance of high quality and food safety. Optimizing logistics processes with cyber-physical systems also means reducing costs, especially transportation processes, reducing food waste, flexible production with resource efficiency, reducing carbon emissions. Green and sustainable logistics using innovative technologies should be a fundamental component of a closed-loop economy.

Hucul horses grazing as a form of sustainable agriculture in the Bieszczady region

DOI: 10.15584/pjsd.2022.26.1.6

The aim of the study was to analyze the grazing of Hucul horses as an element of sustainable agriculture in NATURA 2000-protected areas. The condition of the horses and the grazing load were assessed, as well as the number of birds present and foraging. A load of up to 10 DPJ, resulting from the implementation of agri-environmental programs, appears to be adequate both in terms of counteracting succession and protecting against degradation. The results confirm the positive impact of grazing on habitat species diversity, contributing to the preservation of nesting and foraging sites for birds.
