Conserving Environment by Integrating Religious Practices in School Curriculum

Sourovi Thakur, Usashi Kundu (De)

Today, three of the majorly discussed topics around the globe are Environmental Conservation, Religion and Constructivism. Most developing cities are suffering from poor air quality, scarcity of water, non-replenishable effect of plastics, untimely extinction of species and many other deadly effects of environmental hazards. Religious faiths have proven itself as one of the most powerful and enduring force of human history which acts as an agent of social control and socialization. Among learning theories, Constructivism is the latest approach that says, learners learn and construct their knowledge from their own experiences. So the main focus of the paper is to explore the scope of incorporating the major religious practices in the Science curriculum of secondary school level that directly or indirectly help in environmental conservation, from a constructivist perspective. Descriptive analytical method is used in this present study. Every religion worships some Gods and/or Goddesses and they are mostly represented by different elements of nature. Again, every religion performs certain practices and follows certain rules. Some of those practices and rules are found to be environment friendly. So if the students get to know how these religious practices could help in conserving the environment through the school curriculum, it will be easier to develop pro-environmental behavior among them from a very young age.
