The Green Teacher Course is beautifully designed and the modules are interesting, creative and thought-provoking. This course gave me an opportunity to understand the basics of our environment and how to deal with the issues. As a teacher, it allowed me to experiment with a lot of activities and helped create awareness among students, generate curiosity and bring a change in their attitude.
Environmental Educators need special training as EE is not just about knowing the issues, but to take them into the classroom and engage students in them in fun ways like games, case studies etc. that they can relate to. -

It has helped me be conscious and integrate the environmental perspective in ‘all pervasive manner’. Thank you. –
It helped me develop ‘perspective on environment’.
It helps to humanize the topic and withdraw from the space of ‘activities’.

Green Teacher Diploma was an ice breaker for me to become a passionate environmental educationist. I worked for 10 yrs teaching geography and environment Science in Hyderabad and additionally being a Headmistress I experimented in infusing EE into the curriculum in an informal way.
