Care Earth Trust is deeply invested in designing and implementing environmental education and capacity building programme for school students as well as government officials.

Mainstreaming Ecology and Environment into School Curriculum and Pedagogy was initiated as a training module in order to mainstream the sciences of ecology and environment into school curriculum and pedagogy for middle school teachers in July 2012 in partnership with the Kuruvilla Jacob Memorial Educational Trust. Care Earth also released a resource manual for teachers on Biodiversity Conservation titled ‘Green Guru’ which hopes to connect schools with the environment, cultivating a better sense of curiosity and appreciation for biodiversity in students.

In November 2016 Care Earth launched its capacity building programme for school teachers ‘Redefining the Urban Environment of Chennai’ with the support of Kuruvila Jacob Initiative for Promoting Excellence in School Education. This year-long programme would oversee training sessions as modules, school based projects and interactive sessions.

Schools as eco-stewards was an environmental education and capacity building programme for schools supported as part of the Environment Protection and Renewable Energy Development Fund of the Department of Environment, Government of Tamil Nadu. The target area of this project was the city of Chennai, and districts of Thiruvallur, Kanchipuram, and Thiruvanamalai to implement environment education and capacity building programmes specifically for schools.
