DESD India

CEE and the National Bal Bhavan, New Delhi signed an MOU for working together on the theme of ESD. In that spirit, the National Bal Bhavan declared ESD as a theme for their activities in their centres across the country during 2007. 

CEE facilitated development of the modules to help implementation of the ESD activities in their various centres. A Module Development Workshop involving a small group of resource people from CEE and Bal Bhavan was held at the National Bal Bhavan, New Delhi in 2007. The interactive workshop identified water, air, biodiversity and energy as the themes for the year where the activities would get focused in the context of ESD.

The module in the form of the publication ‘Disha’ developed during this workshop was provided to the National Bal Bhavan centres for carrying out activities around the ESD theme. As part of the plan, the National meet of the Bal Bhavan brought together a variety of activities at New Delhi. Selected activities from these participated at the International Conference on Environment Education (ICEE), later in Ahmedabad.
