Environmental issues are a growing concern in today's world. All the countries, including India, are facing excessive environmental degradation. There are so many policies and laws but no one cares to follow them until the question of punishment comes. One's life is very much related to the environment. What causes environmental degradation, pollution, diseases and stress are to be known and understood and the remedial measures to be applied in local conditions starting from our own homes. If we become aware our duty is to make the people around aware of it for the sustainable development. Everyone will surely want their future generations to dwell in a healthy and peaceful environment with the fulfilment of all the basic necessities of life. The time has come to know all our rights and responsibilities and this can be achieved both informally, non-formally and formally through the education system. Environmental Education has been a core paper at the school and college levels but we need to be more specific about the laws in this paper, how much they are being implemented and what changes can be brought in the curriculum. The present paper is an attempt to make people realise the need for a common discipline in any course of study as well as an individual course of study itself which shall include not only the education part but also the study of laws. This will not only help students to gain academically but also know their rights and responsibilities. This course of study in itself should be a right for all.
