The Wipro Earthian Program is a year-round sustainability education program for middle and high schools. The course consists of activity-based modules that help students address pressing environmental issues such as climate change, waste management, water and biodiversity crises. Students are encouraged to learn through their own observations, develop critical thinking and leadership skills to address environmental issues.
The Earthian program activities are organized into 3 themes – Waste, Water and Biodiversity. The activities in each theme will help students understand and reflect on issues in their school campuses and communities. The activities integrate topics and concepts from the sciences, social sciences and help with the development of language and math skills. Each theme consists of compulsory activities (5), electives (2 out of 4) and an essay submission.
Schools that enrol for the Nature Vidya Wipro Earthian Program also get the opportunity to participate in the Wipro Earthian Competition. The winning school teams are awarded at the Earthian Awards Ceremony held in Bengaluru, and the award carries a cash prize of Rs. 50,000.
