The course will educate participants on the interlinkages between various subjects, such as sciences, social sciences and languages with the themes of environment. The course comprises self-study and has been designed in a way to help participants study the resource material in a structured manner during the four-week period. Participants will be provided learning material such as presentations, videos, real-world case studies, etc. Quizzes and assignments will also be part of this course. An orientation webinar will also be organised to introduce the course and answer queries that the participants may have.  


As per the Supreme Court order (November 22, 1991) and directive (December 18, 2003), study of the environment has been made a compulsory component of the curriculum. National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) also prepared a syllabus for all classes, for Grades 1 to 12, on environment education, in line with the Constitution of India.

The gap however still remains to be filled, as far as environment education is concerned. Environment remains a peripheral issue in the formal schooling system and continues to be viewed more as an extracurricular activity and less as a subject with a priority position in the national curriculum.

Learning Objectives:

  • To introduce the multidisciplinary approach to environment education
  • To integrate environment in daily classroom teaching (online as well)
  • To help participants acquire knowledge and skills to understand the issue of climate change and environment in today’s world

Expected Outcomes

  • Teachers will be easily able to integrate the quizzes they take in their classroom teaching
  • Action-oriented GSP Audit tasks will become easier as clear pathways are shown on how to integrate them into their syllabus
  • Sharing of experiences by teachers from various Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) with the common vision of an environment conscious world will lead to collaboration and new ideas
