The last few decades have seen a number of schools and conservation groups conduct nature-based activities, but most often these are outside of the school hours, and separate from the school syllabus and requirements. Typically, these involve taking children for nature camps, bird watching trips, tree planting drives, creating nature clubs and organising talks on nature. These programmes, conducted by various conservation groups and individuals over the last couple of decades arguably have been instrumental in getting a whole generation of people in India interested in nature, conservation and wildlife, with some following careers in these fields. While these education and outreach programmes are useful and important, teachers and parents tend to view and find these burdensome (often unnecessary) and considered ‘extra-curricular’. This is why we believe that it is important to understand and design a nature learning framework in partnership with schools and school teachers so we can transact locally relevant and age appropriate concepts on nature and the environment. The idea is that these nature modules and concepts can then be incorporated as a part of the school curriculum, and leveraging the fact Environment Education (EE)/ Environmental Sciences (EVS) is a compulsory subject in the school curriculum. To start with we will work with children and teachers of Grade I-V across different school types (Govt., Private, Alternate) and boards.
