Sarabhai Community Science Centre (VASCSC) and Centre for Kachchh Heritage, Arts, Music and Information Resources (KHAMIR), providing an opportunity to orient them to Environment and Sustainable Development, including information on various schemes and programmes of the Ministry of Environment and Forest, Government of India.
Visitors include people from NGOs and other organisations from within and outside Ahmedabad, schools and other such interested individuals.
National and international level and the strategy is to collaborate with others to build synergies, achieve a multiplier effect and enhance effectiveness.
CEE is located on the 14 acre campus of its parent organization, The Nehru Foundation for Development (NFD). The campus has over two hundred species of trees, shrubs and creepers. These in turn attract numerous species of birds. The hill has become home to many species of reptiles, some small mammals and several invertebrates and not to talk of the increasing Langoor population.
All this grew out of the fundamental belief in seeking the help of the community around the hill and sharing resources rather than cutting them off from their fair share and access to the resources.
