ABOUT - ICSE 2019:

ABOUT - ICSE 2019 Education has been used as a tool for social change since times immemorial. Today, owing to growing environmental challenges, we need a change in ideas and attitudes towards planet earth which can be brought only through education. Over the years we are facing rapid deterioration in the quality of environment including pollution of air, water and land, loss of ecosystems and species etc. Climate change has now become one of today’s most serious global challenges to sustainable development and requires immediate and urgent action to address its adverse impacts. Education is an untapped resource in addressing challenges related to environment, climate change and sustainable development. International Conference aims on providing a global platform to national and international dignitaries to discuss the need of incorporation of Education for Sustainability, Climate Change Education and Environmental Education in the current course curriculum. It will also aim on developing recommendations for active integration of ESD, CCE and EE in the current curriculum followed in India to raise our next generation into a responsible citizen who lives by example.
