Green Schools Programme (GSP) conducted by Centre of Science & Environment (CSE), Delhi will put all these under one common roster, explains why they were being done, that is, the objective of the programmes, and then measure their impact. The primary objective is to help the students and teachers to grasp that vital link between environment and everyday life. The future citizens of India must be made aware of the scale of the problem that assails the country’s state of environment. Five groups i.e. Air, Land, Water, Energy and Waste; consisting of Teaching, Non-teaching staff members along with 10 students (in each group) have been constituted under Green School Programme conducted by Centre of Science & Environment (CSE), Delhi to Address the urgent need to introduce meaningful environmental education at the school level in India.
