Abstract
The study is devoted to the problem of comparing attitudes towards global risks among students of different mentality (religious and secular). It was assumed that this attitude varies in a number of components and forms links with identity and tolerance for uncertainty. Respondents: students of an Orthodox university (58 people at the age of 17—29 years old, of which 52% are girls, 48% are boys) and students of a secular university (69 people at the age of 16—31 years old, of whom 71% are girls, 29% are young men). The study used a questionnaire method using the techniques: “Attitude to global risks”, “Tolerance to uncertainty”, “Social identity”. Data was processed in the SPSS 20.0 program. The hypothesis was partially confirmed. Religious authoritarianism as a strategy to prevent global risks by returning to traditional values and controlling citizens is higher for Orthodox students. For secular students, it is more typical to see threats from a fatalistic point of view and to believe in the possibility of preventing global disasters by maintaining a balance of power, cooperation and compromises. Significant relationships of risk attitudes with tolerance to uncertainty and identity are found.

Keywords: religious and secular mentality, global risks, social identity, tolerance to uncertainty.
