Centre for Science and Environment’s (CSE) Green Educators’ Network is a nationwide movement to build a committed network of colleges, faculty and young minds, to enable them to make informed choices on issues of environment and development of this country. It is also a platform for faculty and students to interact on key environmental concerns of today.
“We believe that the heart of learning is the connection between different stakeholders of the environment. Through this network, CSE will bring together these actors and the university community to interact with each other to foster a better understanding of the challenges that the environment faces today,” said Ranjita Menon, Director, Environment Education Unit of CSE.
The Green Educators’ Network is a platform where teachers will be given space to interact amongst themselves and with others who teach the subject. The Network aims to make the faculty teaching the subject aware of the developments on the science and politics of environmental issues. “The aim is also to tap the intelligence of the professionals teaching environment to undergraduates so that the subject of environment comes alive in the classroom,” said Menon.
