Green Curriculum Analysis in Technological Education
Chakraborty, Arpita; Singh, Manvendra Pratap; Roy, Mousumi
International Journal of Progressive Education, v14 n1 p122-129 2018
With rapid industrialization and technological development, India is facing adverse affects of unsustainable pattern of production and consumption. Education for sustainable development has been widely recognized to reduce the threat of environmental degradation and resource depletion. This paper used the content analysis method to explore the extent to which green curriculum has been incorporated in engineering education. The "green curriculum index" suggests that Indian technological education is following vertical integration, with low emphasis on horizontal integration of green curriculum resulting into non-sustained green culture and environmental behaviour among the students. Furthermore, higher educational institutions should understand and accept the relevance of sustainable development rather than responding to the legitimate formality for creating a low-carbon and green economy.
