Vidyanagar Nature Club was established with a mission to spread awareness amongst the local people on the need for environmental protection.

VNC addresses environment needs under three broad categories:

  • Environment Education  - The aim is to recognise nature carrying capacity and develop models to enable sustainable growth and development.
  • Harmonising human needs with natures limits is the objective.
  • VNC uses a good mix of outdoor and indoor activities in these programmes.

These include:

  • Observational Outings provide a break to city dwellers and introduce them to the beauty of nature.
  • Camps promote adaptive living in harmony with nature.
  • Anubhav - experiential learning which provides real experience about the environment which is taught in classrooms.
  • Seminars and Workshops.
  • Environmental Awareness.
  • Reptile Education Program to dispel myths about reptiles and ensure they are not exterminated.
  • Tree Conservation and Plantation - Along with spreading this message, VNC collaborates with other NGOs to promote tree plantations.
  • Evils of plastic.
  • Pollution -  air and water pollution. The awareness measures taken by VNC led to the close of a polluting fertiliser plant in the region.
  • Environmental Conservation.
  • Rescue & Rehabilitation - VNC supports the rescue of urban wildlife
  • Saving Trees - VNC campaigns to prevent unnecessary felling of trees and has saved 400 trees.
