n Kolkata and Mumbai, where their relatives and favourite Bollywood actors will have a lot of trouble," Nariman stressed.
Young students take keen interest in the environmental issues facing India, like the desertification, rising levels of pollutions, dumping of wastes into the rivers, and so on.
"The students show a deep concern when you tell them that the Yamuna is clean when it enters Delhi, but when it reaches at Okhla, it is level-5 dirty - the highest level of pollution," she pointed out.
Through PEAS' activities, students learn some practical ways to help the cause, like segregation of waste at home and reuse, recycle and careful use of resources.
The schools in the PEAS network receive a quarterly magazine on environmental issues, which also carries articles, poems and short stories written by the students. Besides, these schools participate in annual regional students' conferences, regular workshops for students and teachers, and a national students' conference once in two years.
The PEAS schools are now preparing for the 7th National Students' Conference, focused on pollution and health concerns and scheduled for November 16-18 at the Tagore International School in Gurgaon.
Ken Gnanakan, an educationist and environmentalist from Bangalore founded the PEAS network and is its national chairman. The board members of the Delhi chapter include former principals of some of the schools in the network.
