About the book
We are fortunate to be living on this unique planet called Earth. We have been gifted with fresh air, green trees and streams of pure water. Besides this, earth also contains important metals and fuels necessary for the technological growth.
However, with growing population and our irresponsible attitude, we have been plundering these precious resources and have caused immense damage. So much for bad news, but the good news is that awareness and concern for environmental issues is growing all over the world. Nobody wants to breathe polluted air or drink contaminated water.
The series on ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION is a humble effort in familiarizing young students with their surroundings and enabling them to view the same with a sense of care and responsibility. Sensitivity to various components of environment and our relationship with each of these is extremely important.
It has been my earnest endeavour to deal with various environmental issues keeping in mind the students knowledge of related subjects such as Science and Social Studies. Besides facts as they are, I have also provided a list of study to be done as project reports’ work. However, these are guidelines only. Teachers and students may develop their own set of activities and projects suited to their own environment.
I am sure this book will help to achieve to a certain extent the task entrusted to the Educational Institutions by the honourable Supreme Court of India i.e educating our students on various environmental issues.
