New Delhi: On the auspicious occasion of Teachers’ Day, The World Environment Council in collaboration with the International Environmental Studies Olympiad successfully coordinated an International Webinar on the role of teachers in creating environmental awareness in youth. The webinar came into action at 6 PM, on the 5th of September 2023. The webinar gathered environmentalists, chancellors, university directors, government officials, professors, and school teachers from all across the globe including India, Nepal, USA, Dubai etc.

The webinar commenced with a warm welcome from WEC Member, Aditya Kumar Channa, followed by an introduction by the Advisor of WEC, Dheeraj Kumar, who presented an overview of the World Environment Council (WEC) as well as the International Environmental Studies Olympiad (IESO). The foremost guest speaker was Dr. Jubilee Padmanabhan from the Department of School Education, Central University, Punjab. She enlightened the crowd about some key aspects of the role of teachers in fostering environmental awareness in youth and how it is of paramount significance, as they play a pivotal role in molding the attitudes, behaviors, and values of the upcoming generation. Educators are not just instructors; they are mentors and influencers who have the unique opportunity to instill a deep understanding of environmental issues and a sense of responsibility for the planet in their students.

In continuation of the webinar, Dr Ajaykumar Lolage, ex-special officer, Balbharti, Pune; discussed Education and Knowledge Dissemination: “Teachers are the primary source of knowledge for students”. They introduce them to concepts related to the environment, climate change, biodiversity, conservation, and sustainability. Through well-designed curricula and engaging lessons, teachers expose students to a foundational understanding of environmental issues and also embody them with the Inspiration and Motivation to create a change.

They hold the power to influence their students. By sharing their passion for environmental conservation and sustainability, they can ignite a similar enthusiasm in young minds. Inspirational teachers often lay the foundation by examples, resonating with their actions in taking care of the environment.

Our next Guest Speaker was Dr. Kavita Sharma from Environmental Education (Moef and Cl) (NCERT). She expressed her point of view concerning the theme and also gave a detailed explanation of Empowerment, Global Perspective, Values and Ethics.

In  the continuation our next guest was Dr. Sukh Dev Singh CEO of IFS, Delhi  . He spoke about  the   Connecting Global Issues to Local Context: Teachers can help students understand how global environmental issues are interconnected with local concerns. By exploring the impact of environmental problems on their own communities, students may be more motivated to take action.
