The environmental education subject 'Our Land, Our Life' is being taught in the schools of Uttarakhand in a formal way. The teaching of this subject was started on an experimental basis in 1987 in Gandhi Inter College, Panuwanaola of Almora District. It is now being taught in the 6th, 7th and 8th classes in more than 1000 schools of Uttarakhand, as an optional subject in place of agriculture, craft and home science. It is for the first time that NGOs (Uttarakhand Sevanidhi, Gandhi Inter College Panuwanaola and Mirtola Ashram), Central and State governments have jointly developed a curriculum based on the topic of the local environment. Later it was incorporated into mainstream education. During this journey, the curriculum has been revised four times based on the suggestions of experts and the experiences of the teachers and the students. It has also been made suitable for the field districts.
