Why Join Green Schools Program

A holistic education that fosters 21st century skills, environmental awareness, climate literacy, and a global worldview is the key to addressing present-day environmental challenges and building a sustainable future. Education is a vital part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and is considered a driver for the transformations towards achieving the 17 SDGs. India’s National Education Policy 2020[1] too recognizes the importance of environmental awareness for all students and mentions that environmental education should be included in formal curricula.

Through the Green Action Schools Program, schools will

  • Use informative resources and strategies to build knowledge and skills in students,
  • Inculcate in them a spirit of environmental stewardship, and
  • Equip them to create a positive impact in their communities and their future roles as global citizens.

The Program will also provide a platform on which enterprising schools, educators, and students are recognized and celebrated for their eco-friendly initiatives.
