Values, environmental education


The principles of ecology and fundamentals of environment can really help in inculcating a sense of earth-citizenship and a sense of duty to care for the earth and its resources and manage them sustainably. There is a need to provide environmental education to all sections of the society through formal and informal means. When it comes to conservation and protection of the environment everyone needs to understand it because 'the environment belongs to everyone' and is 'every individual's matter'. Today our country is facing environmental problems which have increased in the last few decades. Ignorance and insensitive approach towards the environment can cause natural disaster, the damage caused may never be compensated.
