Formerly known as “Yug Chetna” was established in the year 1986 as an unregistered Voluntary Organisation. The Action is engaged in creating mass awareness to accomplish sustainable and efficacious development, main theme of the society, delight in the society appellation. In the past, our active members have organised several awareness programmes in different parts of the Garhwal Himalaya and actively participated in various sustaining programmes like earthquake rehabilitation. The awareness programmes comprehends Famous Chipko Movement, Save the Ganga, Conservation of water and other precious natural resources, Educational programmes for self reliance in rural men & women, Environmental education, various other life saving activities, etc. Our style for creating awareness is quite different from others, we always try to involve people from the society to an extent that they will solve their problems with their own which will help them in future, and no longer they will remain dependent and unfit. Apart from the awareness, Society is committed to provide Technical Knowledge and Research based solution to the local problems related to Economy, Environment, Development and self employment. For this, Society is recommending to set an Educational Institute of its own under its guidance. The work on this proposal is in progress.
The society is registered under the Societies Registration Act No. 21 of 1860 at Dehradun (U.P., India). Registration No. is 447 (1995-1996)
