MCMEF – ICELA Volunteer Program
(M.C. Mehta Environmental Foundation
Indian Council for Enviro-Legal Action)
Inspired by the success of the First Phase of the MCMEF-ICELA Volunteer Program, the M.C. Mehta Environmental Foundation and the Indian Council for Enviro-Legal Action now launch Phase II of the Volunteer Program.
MCMEF and ICELA are NGOs working nationwide for the protection of the environment, the rights of the people to a clean environment, the promotion of sustainable development and the protection of the natural and cultural heritage of India. Through this program we aim to create a group of empowered, experienced and sensitized citizens who will serve as the voice of Mother Earth wherever they are!
ICELA has contributed significantly to the broadening of environmental jurisprudence in India and has obtained landmark judgments and directions for the protection of environment, people’s life & health. MCMEF has been actively involved in creating awareness among NGO’s, lawyers, scientists, senior officials, academicians, students and youth through training and capacity building programs, seminars, workshops, moot courts, declamation contests, green marches and other grass root level activities.
We believe that if all of us unite and take proper care in the protection and conservation of the limited natural resources, we can give our children a better tomorrow. It is possible only through community participation, awareness and by raising our voice!
In making co-existence and sustainable living a reality, we thus reach out to all those interested in joining the struggle for existence of life on Planet Earth against pollution, climate change and degradation of natural resources! For more information you may check our website www.mcmef.org.
