Sensitizing everyone on Environment Conservation
  • Crisis: Air pollution, poor management of waste, growing water scarcity, falling groundwater tables, water pollution, preservation and quality of forests, biodiversity loss, and land/soil degradation are some of the major environmental issues India faces today. Vidyanagar Nature Club (VNC) formerly known as Voluntary Nature Conservancy was formed in 1988 with a purpose of creating an environment conscious community. The NGO is spearheaded by a group of like-minded friends wanting to bring about change in terms of environment or nature protection.
  • Programs: The projects of the NGO has been divided into three part - i) Environment Education with an emphasis on teaching students the need of environment conservation. ii) Research & Conservation: VNC is involved with innovating and developing new systems in order to monitor, understand and mitigate distributions and status of various species. They have also drawn a digital mapping of trees all over Gujarat. iii) Awareness & Advocacy: Efforts are being made by the NGO to conserve our nature, water and preserving several species through awareness initiatives and advocating for basic rights.
  • Impact: In order to implement their beliefs the organization organizes regular nature camps, tree plantation drives, water conservation installation drives, monitoring & reporting of India's wildlife, etc.
