Building on a serious concern over excessive increase of production garbage waste from one  year to another, this article argues that the garbage waste produced by cities around the  globe has led to an environment crisis and the planet earth has faced desertification, drought, and degradation. Within this scenario, it is high time we brought this awareness by  teaching environment literacy. To this end, the article discusses climate change as an inconvenient scenario, key challenges, tale of two dying rivers, education for sustainable development, and then approaches to environmental education.
