Paryavaran Rakshak Programme 2022

Children are our greatest resource for the future and schools are the facilitators for inculcating knowledge and values in them. Schools, therefore, present a great opportunity for driving change towards sustainability in our communities, sensitizing young minds and presenting models for transformation. The values and lessons learnt at school become the foundation for students’ outlook in life.

Sustainable education is a key for the next generation to become self-reliant global citizens who are aware of the urgency of environmental responsibility. It gives practical knowledge to the students to make the planet more sustainable.

In the recently concluded COP26, UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore called that “COP26 must be the COP for children”. This is because children are the primary basis for all aspects of sustainable development. It is important to invest in our children to let dream and think about the kind of future they wish to have for themselves.

TERI is a pioneer in promoting Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). It is a key for the next generation to become self-reliant global citizens who are aware of the urgency of environmental responsibility. It gives practical knowledge to the students to make the planet more sustainable.
