In India, environmental education (EE) is introduced at various levels. Goals of this country's EE programs include: improving the quality of environment to create awareness among the people on environmental problems and conservation; developing skills to solve environmental problems; creating the necessary atmosphere for citizen participation in decision-making; and developing capabilities to evaluate development programs and awareness of economic, political, and ecological independence.
