Environment education is important
07 October, 2016
An environment crisis has become an important issue and a matter of concern for everyone in this world. Due to urbanization, industrialization, population explosion, nuclear disasters, the environment is getting worse day by day.
Education is a powerful tool to send any social message across, and an education on environment can play a substantial role as it will encourage the students to protect and sustain the environment.
Today’s children need to be prepared for tomorrow's environmental challenges and by educating our children; the next generation will better understand the importance of protecting our earth. They will know from a young age what is global warming and how they could contribute to climate change. They will also understand the benefits of recycling, as well as the importance of developing and producing renewable energy.
So to enhance this positive development in a child many schools and colleges are making an effort to provide students that opportunity to connect with nature, through various outdoor activities and events. So that they start respecting the nature at the early age, and understand its importance for our well-being.

Both teaching and non- teaching staff was in a spirit of zeal and enthusiasm during this activity. They built a Ganpati idol with eco-friendly materials like soil, turmeric, chandan, kumkum, cotton, wool, toothpick, paper, lemon seeds, kidney beans and water. Through this activity the school tried to send the message to all students, that we can celebrate all the beautiful festivals by being compassionate and caring towards Mother Nature.
Important: Environmental education first begins at home
Today children’s everyday life has shifted to the indoors due to the extreme use of television, gadgets and computers. Not only does the loss of children’s outdoor play and contact with the natural world negatively impact the growth and development of the whole child, it also sets the path for a continuing loss of the natural environment.
Hence it’s important that, along with the schools, as parents you also need to make it a point to execute environmental education in your child. Teach your kids how to conserve the natural resources by shutting off lights when not in the room, reducing water usage, and letting them be in charge of the recycling. Help them choose products at the supermarket that use less packaging, or recycled packaging, and show them the importance of purchasing organic items. All these efforts will help us develop a quite different and healthier world, for a better tomorrow.
