ECO-CLUB VBIT is a green initiative by the students of Vignana Bharathi Institute of Technology, Hyderabad to create awareness about the good environmental practices and to green the Earth. Henceforth, we the students of VBIT, have taken this challenge as a means to conserve our mother earth with our motto, “It’s time to pay back mother earth”
Our Vision is to create sensitivity towards environment & to awaken the philanthropic side of mankind.
Our Mission is to connect people by building and bonding relationship with the trees & to facilitate contribution from everyone who would like to enrich nature in a significant way.
Many of the development activities in and around us are coming at the cost of depleting natural resources. Due to such activities, the self-repairing, self-recovering systems like green scape, water scape and mind scape is under great stress.
Seeing this, our idea is to reflect on the state of our towns and cities and make it a better place of living. We are also intended to remind the world of its collective responsibility for the future of the human habitat.
