environment education

The activities in these handbooks developed by Centre For Environmental Education have been made to encourage students to observe and explore their environment; to understand relationships in nature, and between humans and nature; and to learn better how humans are an integral part of the intricate web of life. We believe that learning can be more fun, both for the student and the teacher, when based on real experiences.

During the past 25 years or so we have seen environment appear in different avatars in India’s education arena, sometimes as a handmaiden of ‘mainstream subjects’, wedged between pages of chemistry or history text books or at other times as a common theme of all extra-curricular activities as taking ‘nature walks’ in local parks to making scrap books on local fauna. But never, until now, was it a part of the formal grading system.
