Environmental Activity at CMS Campuses

In its drive to enhance the sense of moral purpose of its students in protecting the environment, CMS takes multiple approaches to involve young minds in ecological projects in the course of their study. There are Eco clubs established in all campuses of CMS, and teachers who are appointed as environment coordinators. CMS campuses collaborate with the Centre for Environment Education (CEE), UP NEDA, SAVEUS and Prithvi Foundation among others for engaging students in projects on water, beating plastic pollution, biodiversity, tree plantations, organic farming, composting, saving electricity, etc. CMS hosts biannually the International Environment Olympiad engaging students from overseas and within India in exploration of innovative ideas to protect the environment. CMS has won prestigious awards and accolades including the Wipro Earthian Award and the Paryavaran Mitra Puraskar awards. It believes that environmental protection is part and parcel of its emphasis on character and civic education.
