‘Green Gyaan’ is Paani Foundation’s digital school programme with the mission to sensitise urban school students from classes 7 and 8 on crucial aspects of the environment. It is a free of cost, 4-session workshop, with no homework, exams or tests. It has been designed as an emotional experience that educates, enhances love towards nature and inspires direct action. The programme will be delivered in English and draws focus towards resource-intensive urban lifestyles and their impact on the environment. Therefore, it is open to only English medium schools across urban cities in the country.
In terms of the learning journey, students will be introduced to the most critical environmental problems facing the Earth (and in turn, humans), and will be encouraged to adopt scientifically proven solutions. Passionate facilitators, carefully selected and trained by Paani Foundation, will conduct each of these sessions, and mould students in eco ambassadors using engaging films, games and activities.
The interdependence between humans and nature
The power and indispensability of water
The ultimate threat of climate change
The necessity of environment restoration
In just 13 weeks spread across 2019 and 2020, Paani Foundation’s school programme reached 65,000 students in 1,900 Zilla Parishad schools in rural Maharashtra. This programme was conducted physically in classrooms and led to tremendous on-ground impact. The digital school programme for urban students was created on the basis of this inspiring success, and aims to nurture thousands of eco ambassadors.
