Environment and Health Education
The concept of education should be drastically changed to create awareness regarding environmental protection. This is the only way to lay the foundation for a new world for the coming generations. It is disturbing to find that the younger generation is still unaware of various aspects of environmental protection. The world is heading towards a state of doom. The resources of nature are being mercilessly plundered leading to the disturbance of ecological balance. It is very surprising that though the state of doom is writ large there is no sense of doom among the people yet. Environmental protection could only be done properly by teaching the subject at the school level. The general public should also be educated about the ways and means of environmental protection. If people realize that they are not going to survive, they will act swiftly to protect the environment. Checking the population growth is a must for protecting the environment. It is necessary to maintain a balance between the demand and the available resources. This can be done by adopting family planning.
