EVOLUTION OF ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION TO EDUCATION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL POLICIES

Meenal Arora, Prof. Dr. Jasim Ahmad

Abstract :

Though, the journey presented in the paper has resulted in Environmental Education becoming an integral component of every school and college programme. However, the challenge still remains. Although, a number of Environmental Education initiatives have been taken up by the central and state governments, non-governmental organisations, academic institutions and business community, the rate of deterioration of the environment, from the loss of biodiversity to climate change, continues at unacceptable levels. Despite of increased awareness levels in the masses, the human footprint continues to be far greater than what the Earth can bear. Thus, what is required is a transformative education, which can idge this knowledge-action gap and can make people behave environmentally responsibly in their day to day activities.
