I am delighted to announce a new member of our small, but growing team.  Sharada Balasubramanian is an environmental educator, writer and a very special person who is highly passionate about the natural world and teaching children and adults about the wonders of nature.

Sharada Balasubramanian

Sharada has been supporting the work of E4C for over a year, and has been getting to know and understand what we are trying to achieve through our environmental education work.  She has helped to keep the momentum going, and I am very pleased to be able to welcome her to our Editorial Panel for EnvELOP and as a contributor to the E4C blog.

Here is some background information about Sharada, and I’m sure you will join me in looking forward to reading her posts, and the material she will be helping to develop for EnvELOP.
Sharada Balasubramanian lives in Coimbatore, India and has been a journalist for the last 9 years. Her passion is rooted to environmental journalism with a focus on conservation education through writing. Though she has published various articles on travel, business, social entrepreneurs and change-makers, her aim is to raise an awareness to educate about the environment through creative non-fiction writing for children and informed reporting by interacting with scientists who are working on conservation issues and highlighting the importance and need for such conservation measures. Last year, she published a book titled ‘Backyard Birding’ in an attempt to reconnect urban humans to nature. She strongly believes that nature is to be preserved and treasured, to be enjoyed and protected and she chose writing to express her love and concern for nature. She is attempting to reach out to schools to educate them and teach them bird watching and educating them on environmental conservation. Sharada also teaches writing for college students and has given talks on self-confidence, motivation, communication skills, to name some. When she is not writing, she likes to go bird watching, travel and explore the country and the world. She has a blog called wildlifemusings.wordpress.com. You can also look at her website to read her stories on www.sharadabalasubramanian.in
