About Green Gurukul >

Our online SWM education program, "Green Gurukul", is aimed at sensitizing students to their environment through hands-on and thought-provoking activities. We believe that this will ensure the next generation is aware of the impact that our individual actions have on the environment, and that our activities and interactions will empower and equip them with the knowledge to make better choices for a cleaner future.

Considering the current situation, our program is now online and aims to engage students through activities, webinars, modules, & competitions. It is designed keeping into consideration the holistic development of every student while focusing on the collective responsibility towards waste management. Our approach aims to bring principals on board and to learn more about the program, and to bring teachers on board through a training of trainers (TOT) model, so that they can then teach our simplified material to their students in the class and online with prepared presentations.


Green Gurukul is now available online.
