The historical evolution of culture, knowledge and religious practices in the Indian sub-continent has been intertwined with environmental education. All our cultural practices revolve around praying to nature and natural resources in one form or the other. Nature has been given the stature of Mother in the Indian sub-continent and is held sacred to the extent that is worshiped.
However, of late, a large section of the modern Indian society has apparently gotten disconnected with their roots. As a result, there is an increasing disconnect between the society and the very environment which supports it.
Consequently, environment is now understood to be an external force by this section of the society and not something that makes them. There is thus a need for imparting environmental education in schools and colleges so as to remind and reconnect all future generations about our environmental heritage.
Delhi Greens works to promote the adoption of environment education in schools and colleges and intervenes from time to time, to ensure adequate implementation of environment education at all levels in our education system.
