The members call themselves Eco-warriors, and they are engaged all throughout the year in raising environmental awareness among fellow students and also motivating them to adopt an environment friendly lifestyle, through a number of activities and events.
In order to reach out to a wider audience and for keeping them abreast with contemporary and relevant environment related news and views, Envisage society publishers a fortnightly newsletter, The Raven. Considered to be intelligent, Raven birds have been believed to play the role of messenger in several mythologies, most recently made famous in the drama series, Game of Thrones. Thus the newsletter is aimed at spreading awareness among youth, encourage them to critically analyse the impacts of human activities on the environment and inspire them to brainstorm on possible solutions for the future. The first issue of the newsletter was released on 15 January, 2021.
Our team is constantly engaged in conducting various activities in the college. These activities are mainly focussed on capacity building of young minds as well as engaging their intellectual and creative skills and talents to address various environmental issues.
