The Earth is a wonderful and unique planet. We are truly fortunate that we are living on this planet. But instead of looking after it carefully we have exploited its resources mercilessly. The result is deforestation, global warming, pollution, etc. These problems have been created by us and it is only we who can find a solution to them. We have to act fast, otherwise we would prove to be our worst enemies.
Environmental Education equips us with knowledge to tackle environmental problems and enables us to live in harmony with nature. It develops in us a ‘reverence for life’. Recognising the importance of Environmental Education in our lives, the Honourable Supreme Court has made Environmental Education (EE) a compulsory subject from Classes I to XII for all the schools from the academic session 2005-06.
