Environmental Education through Media

B. N. Neelima [2] | R. Uttama Reddy [5]

Abstract: The scope of education has expanded from its formal definition to include various media which have potential to inform, create awareness and educate. This is important particularly in the context of developing countries where formal education still remains a luxury. Since environmental conservation is an important goal of development, all media have been reined in to create awareness and provide education. The large scale degradation of the environment requires enlightened citizen action to check the problem. Educational institutions too have a role to play in this regard. A combination of formal environmental education in schools and media education through various channels can be an effective strategy in sensitising people towards environmental issues. A study was conducted to explore the impact of environmental education in schools through an experimental method.150 students of classes 8th, 9th and 10th were shown educational programs over a period of three months and reports of pre test and post test of the experiment were analysed to assess their increase in awareness of environmental issues.
