Young in Green Action : Inspiring stories

 


The National Green Corps (NGC) is a programme of the Ministry for Environment and Forests (MoEF), Government of India. It is a remarkable initiative in the Environment Education field where school children form the crux of the initiative which works through an extensive network of over 1.2 lakh Eco-clubs across the country. This is one of the largest programme of schools for the environment. Paryavaran Mitra taps in on NGC’s massive network of schools to reach its target of 2 lakh schools in over 15 languages to create 2 crore Paryavaran Mitras.

NGC celebrates 10 years since its inception in 2000, this year, and is commemorating this milestone with this publication titled, ‘Young in Green Action-Inspiring stories from the National Green Corps’. It is a compilation of 100 case studies in various themes representing the achievements of the Eco Clubs carrying out Handprint actions to increase their positive impact on this planet.
