SUSTAINABLE LIFETYLES AND EDUCATION

BRAKE EVEN

BACKGROUND & RATIONALE

Young learners today grapple with a wide array of academic disciplines at school. These disciplines,

no doubt, broaden the cognitive and academic horizons of the youth, but overlook several other

aspects of learning. Critical issues related to the environment are often not emphasized upon or

understood thoroughly. While this understanding may not be tested in important examinations, it is

required to tackle the global environmental crisis we face today. This is where Brake-Even steps in

and offers a profound yet fun way to develop environmental stewardship amongst young people.

Brake-Even is Swechha’s innovative short-term outreach programme for schools and other

educational institutions eager to engage with issues related to the environment and

citizenship.
