A school faces closure due to water logging. Another is “built over a sand dune”, water scarce and dusty. The compost pit of yet another one has become a pest and ant haven.
What do these schools do? Nothing? Call for “expert” help? Make it someone else’s problem? Or utilise the minds and enthusiasm of the best resource at their hand - students – to find and implement solutions??
In this handbook, we bring you a curated list of schools across India that have displayed remarkable intelligence and resourcefulness in their quest to make a positive impact on the environment. In doing so, they have also demonstrated the path beyond mere theories.
The book will be immensely useful to school administrators and teachers, supplying them positive examples and a compact toolkit to initiate similar activities at their own schools.
It will be even more useful to students, serving as an inspiration to start being the change now.
