The aim of the article is to analyse the kind of knowledge, values and activity changes of the ecological consciousness toward ecocentric ideas, to explain a new ecocentric worldview paradigm which has to be the main view in the modern education philosophy and theory and to motivate the importance of a reconstruction of ecological consciousness in contemporary education. Ecological consciousness is described as “new rationality, real wisdom and knowledge of real human” that means the perception of ecological “me”. It is stated that ecology crisis is the one of thinking where the solution is the normalization of man and nature's relations and is possible only with the reconstruction of consciousness. The ecology crisis lays the basements of antropocentristic consciousness. If we want to change our relations with nature, we should reconstruct our consciousness. The basis of the ecocentric consciousness is the values of holistic philosophy and humanistic psychology. The methods used are comparative analysis, analytic induction and deduction.
