S Asia's first green school to be in India

Thursday, 12 September 2019 | PNS | New Delhi

India’s first environment school — World Environment School — is all set to be opened in Coorg, Karnataka. It will also be the first school in entire South Asia to take a leading role in promoting and delivering environmental education with sustainability at its core. Spread over a hundred acres across the beautiful hills of Coorg, the school's focus will be to build strong environmental and moral values among its students.

 Mobius Foundation, a non-profit organization working towards environmental sustainability, in partnership with the UK-based Whitgift School announced the launch of this initiative at International Conference on Sustainable Education.

"WESc will be operational from 2021 for Grade 6 to 12 students from India and around the world. The

school will cater to the parents who want the next generation to be actively involved in the protection and sustainability of the environment apart from a world-class education," said Pradip Burman, Chairman, Mobius Foundation.

WESc will offer an international curriculum with affiliation from Cambridge Assessments and International Baccalaureate.

"The need for environmental education is

growing rapidly as the degradation of the environment is taking place at a fast pace and we have taken a lead role in this direction by launching India's first environment school," said Chris Ramsay, Head Master, Whitgift.
