Last week in Calicut, I spoke to the folks at the Nadakkavu girls school (PRISM) project again on the climate curriculum program. The goal is to create a holistic climate program (for students from 5th to 10th standard) that integrates climate/environment centric thinking into students lives and actions. Could be learning, could be civic actions in the school, in their homes, could be homework etc. etc. A holistic program.
The hope is that a significant number of students who come out of the school, are climate/environment “champions”. It’s a govt. girls school with 3000 students. The program that is introduced here has a high probability of being adopted state wide by the state government, and other states too as they look up to PRISM schools.
They requested a small presentation of what we do/who we are (Rainmatter Foundation) and a meeting presenting/introducing. I can find people on ground with local context who can project manage this once it gets going. Need to find expertise who can help design this program.
