Travel, Explore, Experience & Impact

One Earth Foundation is a leader in educational travel for students.  We aim to connect young minds with the immense natural wealth and cultural heritage of our country.  Under our Enviro Trips initiative, we organize outbound field trips for students from leading IB, IGCSE and CBSE schools from across India and overseas.  Our experiential field excursions are customized, theme based and  can be aligned with curriculum of the participating students and most of all – are challenging and inspiring. Our handpicked destinations include the

  • Dhauladhar Ranges in the Himalayas 
  • Magnificent national parks and spectacular beaches of Goa
  • The Blue Mountains (Nilgiris) in Western Ghats
  • The breath-taking Andamans
  • more to come…..
The These are typically 3 – 7 day camps where our students explore the natural surroundings and engage with the cultural diversity of the region.  As our trips are theme based, we could cover one or more topics / projects during the trip. Our topics / projects are of 2 types:

a) Environmental / ecological and 

b) Community / social development 

All our projects focus on interaction and participation and are very hands on.  We encourage students to question their actions and their impacts. It also teaches them to plan and reflect at all stages of a project. Finally, our approach emphasizes experiential learning.  Some of the areas in which our participating students engage are:
  • Tribes, tribals & Livelihoods 
  • Traditional Knowledge Systems and the need for revival
  • Tribal Arts & Crafts
  • The floristic diversity of the Himalayas
  • Organic & Bio-dynamic farming: Community health & Nutrition
  • Village Schools:  Teach, Inspire and Mentor
  • The lost Tibetan culture
  • Special Needs Groups:  Impacting lives
  • Biodiversity & Conservation
  • Geography projects like soil testing, river study, etc
  • Tools of Forest Mensuration
  • GIS: Theory, practice & applications for students
  • Nature & Wildlife Photography
  • Environmental & Wildlife Laws in India
  • Introduction to Astronomy
  • Radio Astronomy
