According to analysts, health, ecology, and a healthy lifestyle are among the values that are perceived by a person as priorities of the second and maybe third order. As long as a person is healthy, he does not pay much attention to them. At the same time, if he has health problems, especially those that directly threaten him viability, all other values lose their meaning: life-sustaining priorities become paramount. Overcoming this paradox is one of the main tasks of the education system. Person must be taught the rules of caring for himself, his family, loved ones, colleagues, comrades and friends and about human as the basic value of civilization. Unfortunately, for a long time this problem was on the periphery of domestic education and upbringing. And only from the middle of the twentieth century, primarily due to the activities of scientists-members of the famous "Club of Rome", life-giving values gradually moved to the center of humanitarian policy of most countries. They have become a priority in the education system. Their formation by means of education has become an integral part of modern humanitarian education of the individual. The most urgent task not only of the present, but also of the future is to promote the development of children and youth. Pan-European and national strategies for the harmonious development of children and youth must be based on close cooperation between education and health systems. The relationship between education, upbringing and health needs to be understood not by individual teachers, but by the entire world community. It should be noted that not all European countries today have achieved the harmonious development of children, adolescents and youth. This problem should still be considered Pan-European. Obviously, the right to human life must be ensured through the implementation in social practice of such basic values of present as peace, environmental security, health. It is those European values of education that are the basis for the existence of other values, which is reflected in legislation, educational programs, the content of academic disciplines of the European cultural and educational space.
