  1. What is the importance of environment education?

Environment education is of paramount importance these days. The rate at which environment is being degraded is so fast that if we don’t take steps today, there  will be nothing left for our children and grandchildren.

  1. How to protect the environment?

We can take simple steps to protect the environment at our individual level. We have to follow some do’s and dont’s. Do plant trees; do recycle things; do accept recycled material; do switch off unwanted lights and fans; do use public transport; do car­pooling. Don’t use plastics; don’t use cars for short distances; don’t throw things and buy new ones without need and so on.

  1. Do you think it is necessary to make environment protection as a subject in school?

Yes, definitely. Environmental science should be a compulsory subject in schools.

  1. Is it important to protect the environment?

Yes , I believe that it is our moral responsibility to protect the environment as we are the ones responsible for its deterioration. Secondly, I think our survival depends upon the environment so we really don’t have a choice in this matter.

  1. Should schools teach students to protect the environment?

Yes, today the I believe  the importance of  schools in teaching morals and values is paramount. We live in a nuclear society where in most cases both parents are busy working. School is the only place left where students can learn about the environment and its protection.

  1. Do schools in your country teach students to protect the environment?

Yes, today environment and its protection is separate subject in school. Both the necessity and the ways to protect and save the environment are covered in schools. Besides this , there are also environment fairs organised by schools    from time to time.

  1. Do companies in your country protect the environment and do they have responsibilities to protect the environment?

Unfortunately, most of the companies in India aren’t doing much about the environment. However, recently the governments have started incentivising companies to protect the environment in form of tax waivers and subsidies. This might change the trend. Coming to second question, yes they definitely have the responsibility to protect the environment since they are a part of the society as well.
