The Programme has been designed to create awareness on critical environmental issues including e-waste and
inspiring students to adopt preventive environmental strategies in their daily lives. The programme is
designed to create an environmental movement in schools with teachers playing a leading role. The
challenge for schools today is to create an education approach that is agile, adaptable and in-tune
with the lives of students outside of the classroom and their future career. Schools need to create
opportunities that allow students to become aware of real-world problems and makes them future ready.
This programme is designed to deploy contemporary pedagogical practices in the classroom to develop the
21st century skills of real-world problem solving, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity,
communication and ICT competencies. The curriculum consisting of a toolkit of activities is intended
for class 5 to 10.
