This program seeks to train the next generation of environmental champions using the transformative power of education to develop the enhanced knowledge, values, attitudes, commitment and skills required to protect and improve the environment. The United Board works closely with colleges and universities – and the communities in which they operate – to deal with environment and health threats in their immediate surroundings. The initiative seeks through education, research and hands-on experience to empower people to take responsibility and control over their own environment. In 2010, the Partnerships for Environmental Action was formed in India. Similar partnerships are soon expected in Indonesia, and later in China.
