Background


Ecologically all the species are equal and same but among all the species, human being is intelligent on the earth. So human being has become superior creature of the world. It is universally accepted that we all the people are obliged to depend upon natural resources for the development and modern civilization. But due to blind-race on consumerism the activities of the human beings have hampered the natural balance ultimately threatening the present and future of human existence on planet earth.  It is the sole duty and responsibility of human beings from every group to help minimize the global impacts of climate change and environmental degradation as we are considered the culprits of worsening environment.   

In order to develop the ethical responsibilities towards environment it is important for educational institution to adopt conservation education. Environment friendly behavior along with the knowledge and skill of conservation culture, conceptual adaptation of green generation along with the education about conservation of bio-diversity and sustainable utilization of natural resources can help us to get some aware citizens who help in preserving our environment. Realizing this fact Jagadamba Higher Secondary School, Madela, Thakurdwara-2, Bardiya, Nepal initiated forming Eco Clubs with the full leadership and involvement of students in 2052 B.S. In this way Eco Club was also formed in other different places in Nepal.

Later all the Eco clubs were unified to share their experience towards conservation. So an umbrella organization is registered in Bardia district named as “School Environment Conservation Education Network Nepal [SENSE- Nepal]”. This organization wants to make involvement of school children for the conservation and it wants to well manage all the programs which Eco clubs have tried to do. Now this organization has been working in landscapes area of districts. The central office of the organization is in Thakurdwara VDC -1 Madela, Bardia. The organization has been performing its activities thinking that children participation is needed for natural conservation.
