Informative Environmental Websites Recommended by Eco-generation Members



1.Website: Global Green Growth Institute
null

Recommended by Shashwat Jolly

Introduction
GGGI is a new kind of international organization - interdisciplinary, multi-stakeholder and driven by the needs of emerging and developing countries. It has been established by several forward-thinking governments to maximize the opportunity for 'bottom up' (i.e., country and business-led) progress on climate change and other environmental challenges within core economic policy and business strategies. 
The Institute is designed to be an open, global platform to support experimentation and collective learning by developing countries seeking to leapfrog the resource-intensive and environmentally unsustainable model of industrial development pioneered by advanced economies in an earlier era. 
The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) was founded on the belief that economic growth and environmental sustainability can be compatible objectives and their integration is essential for the future of humankind. I recommend this site because I believe such an institute could be nucleus in promoting environment and sustainability projects in developing and underdeveloped countries. This institute will provide much needed funding and support to change skewed industrial development in favor of environment friendly development models.




2.Website: Kids Be Green
null

Recommended by Kritika Narula

Introduction
This website is the most wonderful, colorful and fun-filled environment website. It has an interactive background, upon which stand some of the most informative games. Although it is a website meant for kids, it enraptures and spellbinds even grown-ups, striking a chord to their core. The most interesting feature is the 3Rs challenge, wherein the player saves items being otherwise wasted, by reusing, recycling and reducing wastage. 
Upon reading, it seems nothing magnificent, hence here I deem it befitting to mention the reason I chose this website. When I first visited this website, it was just a chance occurrence, like just finding it over the search engine. But I just couldn't resist the temptation to use it more profusely. The pivotal event happened when I introduced some friends, eight to eleven year olds to this website when they were pestering me for games. They played the 3rs game extensively, and it must have had an impact on them, so much so that they ended up replicating the same in real life. They had started recycling paper bags, old bangles into beautiful pen holders, reusing newspapers, and repeatedly asking their parents to send the old e-waste and junk material to some recycling agency.  As if this was not enough, they even made a bird feeder out of recycled material in their vacations, after learning the directions and instructions given on the website. Today, they revere the website and are making a big difference!!!!!! 
So, I think to myself, "If a website can incite so young children into becoming environment enthusiasts, then surely this website deserves a special mention ..." Small deeds go a long way....




3-1.Website: Kidsrgreen

Recommended by Aaditya Singh

Introduction
An interactive website for children who love exploring, enquiring, investigating and discovering the world we live in, this hands-on site offers plenty of advice to children who want to go green - both in and out of school time. You can hop on a spaceship for a round-the-world tour or go on a mission with 'Trip the Drip' to discover the importance of water to the planet. 




3-2.Website: Nature Challenge for Kids Website 
null


Introduction
Meet Dr. David Suzuki. Through this website he challenges children to follow a ten-step action plan covering topics such as food, travel, and the home. The idea is for children to gain better eco-awareness and apply it to their everyday lives. You'll also find fun role play ideas and activities to encourage kids to express their views on nature and the environment. Dr. David Suzuki works with government, business and individuals to conserve our environment by providing science-based research, education and policy work, and acting as a catalyst for the change that today's situation demands. His mission is to protect the diversity of nature and our quality of life, now and for the future.




3-3.Website: CBeebies Green Balloon Club Website 
null
Link: http://www.cbeebies.com/

   
Introduction
This is another great website for kids by BBC. The Green Balloon Club stars four eco-warrior children and a dog, who live in a virtual green club house. The site is full of songs, videos, print and color activities – and there's a green star club where you can print out a chart and collect reward stickers for good green behavior. This is a great site for edutainment.




3-4.Website: Meet the Greens Website 
null

Introduction
Meet the Greens is a website about an environmentally conscious family who are trying to do their bit for the planet. This US-based site features short animated adventures, which all carry an eco-message. 'Tons of trash', 'birds need trees' and 'food rescue' are just a few of the episodes on the site. There's also an interactive blog where children can discuss how they feel about the programs they've watched.




3-5.Website: The Recyclezone Website 
null
[NOT AVAILABLE ANY MORE]

Introduction
The Recyclezone Website is very interesting for primary school children to introduce the concept of environmental conservation, the 3'R's and sustainability to them. It is a good site for schools, children and teachers that tells about what's what in the world of waste! Although this site is called Recyclezone, recycling is only one of the things it talks about. They talk about the 3Rs - reduce, reuse and recycle. It has different zones- Fun zone, Info Zone, Recycler Zone, Teacher's zone and Activity Zone. All in all a great site for beginners...




3-6.Website: Environmental Protection
null

Introduction
It is an interesting and informative website with a lot of resources and articles related to current environmental issues. It even conducts online courses for interested professionals and also promotes green products through the website. There are also various links to other related sites. It is based in USA but we can learn a lot from the information on the site and apply in our regions. I hope all you find it as useful as I do. There are many other fun and games websites related to eco protection that I used to go browse till recently, but I chose this one over them as I feel this is a serious matter and the issue is beyond the fun and games stage now. As you all will agree, we need to start taking things seriously right now if we have to save the future for ourselves and the next generations.




4.Website: Rain Forum Society Bangladesh 
null

Recommended by MD. AMINUL Islam

Introduction
This is an excellent website which is discussing the current water issues with probable solutions. RAiN Forum is A non-profit voluntary platform for knowledge sharing and promotion of rainwater among scientist, engineers, architects, planners, academicians, practitioners, administrators, students and others who are directly or indirectly concerned in rainwater harvesting.




5.Website: Environment About 
null

Recommended by Arushi Madan
null

Introduction
I recommend this because Environment About covers green news, sustainable development ideas and publishes many educational articles on environment. I refer to it regularly to enrich my knowledge on environment issues and ideas to adopt sustainability in our real life. I really like the way they cover different aspects of environmental issues today. Some of the interesting articles I read there are: Paper Towels Vs Hand Dryers: Which is Greener? Best ways to reduce our carbon footprint and to remove harmful chemicals from daily life. Why throw plastic bottles when you can reuse them for a range of household purposes?
