Founded in 2015 by Kavya Chandra a Nature lover and Green Entrepreneur, Kavya worked with various sustainability start ups for 8 years, her actual journey started in 2010 when she got her diving license and fell in love with the natural world. 5 years of working with small organisations and graduating from CEPT and IGNOU with degrees in Climate & Sustainability gave her the push to start her own Nature Education.
Today A Green Venture works with various farmers, schools, groups and teams bringing learning, discovery, better choices and happiness.
With over 400 workshops and sessions covering farm visits, nature camps, city walks, Gardening her mission is to impact as many schools, groups and people across the country bridging the gap between the outdoors and people through the education and experiences at A Green Venture.
According to Kavya,“There is a huge need to connect back to the real world, we have moved away from all forms of natural life around us, we now seek enclosed spaces devoid of nature and only screens and tech which actually does more harm to us than good. As a child growing up in a city like Bangalore, the outdoors was where play, discovery, learning and spending time took place. We learn so much from the natural world which teaches patience, social structure, information, it takes away our fear and teaches us to be free. Nature is the best form of education and learning, we need to integrate this into lives to sow seeds of learning and appreciation of our natural resources.”
