NATIONAL ENVIRONMENT SCIENCE CAMP

 Program Outline
 

At  National Environment Science Camp 2017-18, we shall try to understand the bond which binds Forest and Man, Each day we will focus on different aspect of this timeless connection:

DAY 1: MAN: THE FOREST WORSHIPER
DAY 2: MAN  AS DESTROYER
DAY 3: MAN AS CONSERVER
DAY 4: MAN AS CONSERVER



DAY 1: MAN: THE FOREST WORSHIPER
Man is indebted to forest for his very existence and sustenance in all stages of his evolution; as a hunter-gatherer, an agriculturist; in the industrial and post industrial age as well. We begin unlocking this relationship on the first day of our Camp with Man: A Forest Worshiper. This ancient man thanked the forest for its bounties.


DAY 2: MAN  AS DESTROYER
we get to understand how Man, the Exploiter, began pillaging the wealth of nature ever since the Industrial revolution to a point where the flame of life is flickering.


DAY 3 & 4: MAN AS CONSERVER
On day 3 and 4 of our Camp, we shall analyze what can be done to preserve our forests. After the wanton destruction caused by man, the realization has dawned that natural resources like forests are not infinite; once lost, they are lost forever. Man, as a Conserver, is trying to make some amends.  We believe that the process of conservation is only possible when every single individual makes his/her contribution. We intend to involve our Campers in an audacious project to re-create a real forest.
