This study explores the integration of green education in India as a crucial pathway to sustainable development. Given the country's rapid industrialization and urbanisation, environmental education is essential for raising awareness and promoting sustainable practices among the younger population. The research examines current initiatives such as the National Green Corps and the Green Schools Programme, which aim to embed environmental consciousness in the education system. However, significant challenges such as resource constraints, inadequate curriculum integration, and insufficient teacher training hinder the effectiveness of these programs. The study suggests a multifaceted approach to address these challenges, including stronger policy support, innovative teaching methods, public-private partnerships, and community involvement. By enhancing green education, India can better equip its youth to address environmental issues, fostering a culture of sustainability that is essential for the country's long-term environmental health.
