This article summarizes the main findings of the study entitled Strategy for Sustainable Development of the Czech Republic. Using the methodology of National 21st Century Studies, the study analyses conditions under which particular positive or negative phenomena could appear and identifies key factors for a desirable future, which is understood to mean sustainable development. Four alternative scenarios outline possible current and future trends: a classical monetary market economy, Keynesian monetary market economy, sustainable development scenario and wild card scenario. Human values are considered to be the most important factor in the sustainable development scenario and values compatible and incompatible with sustainable living are briefly discussed in the article.
