Gujarat to double number of nature education camps

The Gujarat government will double the number of nature education camps for school students to 2,000 from the academic year 2023-’24 and overhaul the nature education models to reflect the new realities and facilitate experiential learning, the government said on Sunday.

“At present, we are covering around 1.5 lakh students in the nature education camps every year. But now, we are thinking why not reach out to 15 lakh students or even more with a marginal increase in funding,” Nityananda Srivastava, principal chief conservator of forests (wildlife) and the chief wildlife warden said, adding, for achieving this, the government has decided to double the annual quota of nature education camps from the 1,000.

The PCCF was addressing the inaugural ceremony of “Nature Education: Challenges and Strategy”, a day-long workshop organised by the Gujarat Ecology Commission (GEC) for brainstorming and to make     recommendations to the         government for overhauling the current programme of nature education.

The state government has around 50 camping sites, which will be upgraded, Srivastava said.
