Abstract As citizens, we live in a globalized world where we experience the risks and dangers of cultural and climate change, decarbonisation, terrorism, and hybrid wars and population migrations. They generate many existential, cultural and civilization challenges. They are accompanied by conflicts and social inequalities related to them closely related to gender, age, social position, ethnic origin, race and religion. The ability to acquire, accumulate, select and use knowledge to overcome them plays an important role in getting to know and understand them. Its universal values are appreciated by the young generation, which mobilizes their strength to deepen it not only for educational purposes professional careers, but also for limiting climate change and fighting for human rights. This shows that they are becoming more and more aware of the need for solidarity to broaden their ability to decide about goals and how to achieve them. Which allows for the formulation of the thesis that knowledge about the culture of personal and structural security, especially based on the results of sociological research, can play an important role in stimulating the imagination, innovation, social sensitivity, criticism and reflectiveness, shaping the atmosphere of trust and respect as well as social and moral order. Life presents us with more and more complex political, social, economic and cultural problems to be solved, to which we seek answers using known theories and processes as well as norms and values.
