UP to become first state in India to include Ganga conservation as part of school syllabus

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Secondary Education Board (UPSEB) has prepared a proposal to include Ganga conservation and prevention of water pollution in the curriculum, says a government spokesman. The board has sent the proposal to a committee of Hindi experts for consideration, reports IANS

Once the committee approves the proposal, Ganga Conservation will be included in the syllabus and students will study the subject at the high school and intermediate level.

Ganga conservation was included as a subject at the initiative of the Namami Gange Department and Uttar Pradesh will be the first state in India to do so.

As per the proposed syllabus, students will learn ways to save the holy water of the Ganga from getting polluted and the journey of the Ganga from the Himalayas to the Bay of Bengal.

The idea is to link the Ganga cleanliness campaign with the youth and spread Prime Minister Narendra Modi's concept of 'Nirmal and Aviral Ganga' among children.

The initiative, said officials, will not only enhance the knowledge of children, but will also give a new momentum to the Ganga cleanliness.

The Namami Gange and the state government's rural water supply department have directed the secondary education department to implement new courses and activities related to the Ganga pollution in schools and also make it compulsory for students to take part in Ganga cleanliness programme.

In order to make the school children aware of pollution in the river Ganga, the government will also organise different competitions on the topics related to Ganga conservation.
