This is CSE's latest book on Climate Change for educating school children. CSE's Environment Education Unit has always been working towards providing easy-to-understand reading material. Our new publication on this subject is an attempt to lend teachers a helping hand. It unfolds in two sections: Climate Change: how to make sense of it all, & Natural Resources: how to share and care. Here, the key issues selected adhere strictly to curriculum guidelines. However, they are introduced to students not as a paragraph to memorise, but as an activity to do.

This is the second edition of the manual and is designed as a self-learning and assessment tool so that teachers can work with students to audit their use of natural resources and to experiment with environment friendly practices. It is a learning programme for building a new generation of people who are prepared to change the future.
