CMS VATAVARAN at the threshold of a new era

Ideals are abstract. In 2002, CMS committed itself to a process animated by a few, really abstract, ideals.Even as the natural world seemed to reach the end of its carrying capacity, environment concerns seemed restricted to a few. But how could that be? Why was it so? What could be done?

CMS took the road less travelled and conceived an innovative idea to address these concerns. The dream was to make environmental concerns a priority through a platform that was not only exciting but also deeply enriching. The
aim was to create a platform for practitioners to interact with people to make the entire effort collaboration. The rich experience of CMS in environmental issues and the urge to go “Beyond Research” sowed the seeds of
CMS VATAVARAN – a pioneering international festival of Environment and Wildlife.
