The basic philosophy of this club is that we have not inherited this earth from our ancestors but we have borrowed it from our future generations. There are 17 Sustainable Development Goals recommended by The United Nations which are to be achieved by the year 2030. This SDG Club intends to create awareness of these goals through discussions, workshops, seminars, and webinars. We do not believe in preaching but in finding sustainable and innovative solutions to encounter the problems arising in today’s world. In response to the thirteenth goal which is Climate Action our school has been the first to be awarded the title of being “Green School”. At Gyan Anant Vidyalaya, we provide statements of content, knowledge, skills, and understanding, and attainment target levels in all the areas of development for a child. Our curriculum also inculcates the education philosophy of M.K. Gandhi which is to ensure the proper coordination of Head, Heart, and Hand for the holistic development of a child. We understand that academic subjects cover only half of the areas of curriculum, where we believe in putting the child and his or her needs and situation first. So not only do we recognize that each child is a separate individual, but also that every day is different and each day provides another opportunity to learn something or the other and become better citizens of tomorrow. According to the recommendations of NCF 2005, we believe in learning without burden. For this, timetables are arranged in such a way that the child does not need to carry all the books to school every day. Learners are sensitized about environmental issues through direct curriculum of EVS as well as through interlinking of all subjects with each other and surroundings. We specifically focus on Sustainable Development Goals by engaging learners in different activities such as Plantation Drives, Cleanliness campaigns, Social work, Waste Management, Discussions, and Debates throughout the year.
