OF THE STATES
Background. The latest political, economic, social and environmental components that are present in the transformations of the economic systems of the countries intensify globalization in a dynamically changing environment of human life, where the potential of natural, resource, energy, information and other types of support is different between countries of the world. Creating a climate of trust and increasing investments in diplomacy through a combination of economic and environmental interests of countries should focus on political constructivism, market adaptability and social utility from the global eco-synergy of humanity through the use of convergence potential.
Analysis of recent research and publications. Scientific research on ecological aspects of diplomacy is considered by scientists in the context of a problem that reflects: international ecological and economic policy, economic security; the specificity of species convergence through various aspects of its representation: geopolitical, economic, ecological, energy; new vectors of diplomacy and its integrated forms of environmentalization.

Materials and methods. In accordance with the purpose and subject of research the general and special scientific methods are used in the article.
The results of the research. Setting up and intensifying of international contacts is a natural process of convergence of different cultures of countries, including political, economic, business and other components. But impulses of public intentions are laid, first of all, in the natural-ecological components that are able to influence a range of other components and enhance their effect on the basis of convergence effects. Ecological diplomacy significantly expands its tasks and mechanisms for strengthening international cooperation through different formats of convergence (functional, institutional, communication, integration). Foreign practice proves that convergence can fulfill an important mission in terms of eco-comfort of a collaborative space of interaction. Environmental legislation is not an end in itself; it should provide benefits for European citizens and overcome common challenges. In Ukraine, the issue of the need to improve the level of practical application of environmental legislation has its urgency. Conducting systemic reforms in this area of activity involves providing expert assessment and financial support, conducting discourse on platforms of international importance among politicians, diplomats, analysts and other professionals.
Conclusion. Geopolitics and the global economy in the conditions of globalized oecumene most cause socio-environmental metamorphoses. They give rise to new angles of perception of the values of the material world, which may be vulnerable to natural elements and man-made disasters. The driving force for this is to improve the culture of interaction, communications in the field of international economic relations and strategic partnership. The dynamics of scientific and technological progress affects the global economy, creating the appropriate conditions for the activation of environmental diplomacy in the format of convergence of the state and ensuring the implementation of multi-vector integration of the countries of the world.
