    Organization of such events is very constructive for people especially youngsters to learn about environment related issues. Such events not only create awareness but generate interest to know more about the burning issues of climate change and sustainable development
    It’s a grate opportunity for Shimlites that CMS VATAVARAN is organizing Environment and Wildlife Travelling film festival in this town . Such events are generally organized in big towns and cities mainly for educated elites who already have easy access to learn now and then
    Students and people at large, in small towns and villages rarely get chance to see such events with limited sources to learn (only through their text books).
    It shall be very advantageous for all if you showcase this festival not only in shimla but in all school/colleges of Himachal so that most have chance to experience and learn from such informative events
