Setting up and Running Environment Clubs

Eco clubs in schools are a means by which students can be empowered to participate and take up meaningful environmental activities and projects. It is a forum through which students can reach out to influence and engage their parents and neighborhood communities to promote sound environmental behavior. The Eco Club also empowers students to explore environmental concepts and actions beyond the confines of a syllabi or curriculum.field of environment education is dogged by a very fundamental contradiction. While everyone, everywhere, asserts the importance of ‘learning to live sustainably,’ environment remains a peripheral issue in the formal schooling system. It continues to be viewed more as an extracurricular activity and less as a subject holding a priority position in the national curriculum.

What is an Eco Club?

An Eco Club is usually set up by a teacher and a group of motivated students to learn about the environment and to take action to improve their immediate environment.

  They also provide a wonderful opportunity to help generate awareness, build attitudes and enable students to take up activities in the real world, in a way that the constraints of the classroom and curriculum won’t allow.

Sustainable Schools and Eco Club

  It is mandatory for schools that register in this initiative to initiate an Eco Club.

Any motivated teacher from the school could become the coordinator for the Eco Club.  

A guide to setting up and running Eco clubs is provided for download for the registered schools. The guide illustrates clearly how an Eco club can be initiated in the school, how many students should ideally be in the club and what kind of activities and projects can be undertaken by the club.

In short this guide will help the Eco club coordinator in the schools to systematically and successfully run the club and reach out to the community. Schools can also attend the orientation training conducted by the Environment Agency for the nominated Eco Club coordinators from the registered schools should they feel the need to learn more. You can Look up the announcements for the training dates


Schools that committed to the initiative are expected to come up with an annual plan for their Club

Teachers who attend Eco Club training are given an Eco club evaluation check list sheet, this should be filled in by schools and sent for evaluation. Upon request this checklist could also be mailed to schools that did not attend the training but are registered schools under  initiative

Schools should submit a short 3 -5 page report on projects that have been taken up as a part of the Eco club activities with evidence (could be in the form of photographs)


(1) Number of community (parents and neighbourhood) that the club reached out to on the chosen environmental theme
(2) Kinds of project taken up by the school in addition to
(3) Running the club systematically.

The School can also share any other innovative practice that they would have carried out through their club
