An important part of environmental protection policy is education, through specialized EU academic programmes, especially important for raising Serbian Higher Education institutions awareness on enhancing the quality of education in compliance with the European Higher Education Area. Agriculture is one of most important areas in overall European economy, with Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) being one of oldest and probably most regulated among European Union policies. From 1962 CAP is the instrument that unites complete agricultural production in the Union. Changes and adoptions done in last decade clearly show direction towards rural development instead of intensive production as one of CAP major goals. Important part of rural development policy is environmental protection and sustainable production and development, and those premises are included in almost all activities of EU managed and financed activities. Six so far completed specialized Environmental Action Programmes helped to improve both EU legislation and practice in member countries in direction of sustainable development and organic production. For Serbia, this issue is extremely important as it should follow, among other, trends in EU agricultural policy in order to successfully join Union in near future. Quality Higher Education in area of environmental protection and sustainable development is important asset in this process.
