COORG, India - Oct. 17, 2019 - PRLog -- The World Environment School Coorg (WESc) in Kodagu will be India's first boarding school for environmental studies when it opens its doors to students in April 2021.
Global climate change and environmental sustainability have been key agendas amongst governments, scientists and international organizations. The United Nations has been working with countries to take action against climate change and pressing environmental issues. We have advanced tremendously with the development of technology, increased use of natural fuels, and have been creating so much waste that can no longer be contained in our landfills. Airlines have stepped up to fight climate change by introducing carbon offsets, retailers are encouraging the use of reusable "eco" bags instead of non-biodegradable plastic bags, and energy companies have begun shifting their focus towards more sustainable sources. Environmental awareness has become a necessity in our society and it is critical to educate our children now before it is too late.

Mr. Pradip Burman (,the founder of the school, believes that WESc is the solution. A first of its kind, the school for environmental studies aims to educate youths to become advocates of sustainability to reverse the damage that has already been inflicted on this planet by the generations before them. Teaching our youths the importance of caring for the environment during their formative years is essential for Earth to continue flourishing for the generations to come.

The co-educational residential school in Coorg for youths between the ages of 11 and 18 provides education based on global standards to build a pathway for its students towards the best global universities. Students will be prepared academically through the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) curriculum in Years VI to X, and the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum in Years XI and XII to give them good academic standing internationally. With a focus on environmental studies, students graduating from WESc will become wholesome individuals with a social sensitivity to global environmental issues, placing them a notch above others. The students will be equipped with the knowledge and values to become active citizens and future environmental leaders in ensuring the sustainability of their environment.

With the first school term starting on April 2021, the WESc and its founder, Mr. Pradip Burman, look forward to youths joining the world's first residential school dedicated to developing the next generation of environmental leaders.
