A people's environment movement.

Van Indore

Van Indore, is a group of progressive people collectively working towards a greener Indore. Indore, once a heaven of all that is beautiful in Nature, is fast succumbing to the pressures of a rapidly expanding city and a self centered society. Huge leaps in population, rampant urbanisation, deforestation, pollution and the impact of plastics, all have combined to change the Indore we can recall.

Many people and organisations have been making an impact in their chosen fields of work , raising awareness, mobilising concerned citizens and putting hands into dirt wherever required.

All these , though big efforts in their own way, have not brought about the big visible results we dream of. This initiative is to create synergy between various city initiatives and the dedicated work of individuals and groups, to work towards a cleaner, greener and healthier today for its citizens.

Let's join hands in this effort to make the impact of what we are doing greater.

Write to us to discuss the level and type of synergy we can add amongst ourselves.
