Mumbai: Mount Litera Zee School (MLZS), India's fastest growing network of K12 schools proudly announces its association with Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) for Mount Litera Zee School’s network of 90 schools spread across 75 cities. Centre for Science and Environment is a public interest research and advocacy organisation based in New Delhi.
Mount Litera Zee Schools’ collaboration with CSE aims at sensitize students towards management of natural resources, consumption patterns and also help innovate using various technologies.
CSE focus on the use of knowledge to bring change by reinventing new growth models which will not cost us the earth. The association will help to inculcate this way of thinking among students from the very beginning and ensure lifelong support for this.
Green School Program is an initiative by CSE under which an ‘inspection’ or ‘survey’ of the school is done by its students on its environmental practices. This program aligns well with Mount Litera Zee School’s philosophy - to allow children to explore and discover; to learn through practical learning.
This Program would help students to survey with interesting handbook called the Green Schools Programme Manual and gives students step by step guidelines on how to conduct an environmental audit in the school. Under the aegis of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Green School Program will put special emphasis on Waste Management aiming to build zero-waste schools.
The outcome will be a report that benchmarks environmental practices of MLZS school community.
Commenting on the association, Mr. Nitish Menon, Business Head, Mount Litera Zee Schools said; “We are excited to collaborate with Centre for Science and Environment. It’s important to inform children on environmental issues and then offer a solution to those problems, rather than telling them what they ought to do.
This approach works as it offers reasoning and ensure practical teaching- which is what we like to do at Mount Litera Zee Schools. CSE and MLZS think alike and our collective knowledge based activism will result in creating global leaders who care for Environment“.
