Life Meets the Lens is an attempt to educate students and general public to explore the natural world and witness its remarkable biodiversity.
The idea is to help people become aware of the thousands of life forms that thrive in an invisible and delicate web of interdependence to ensure a balance of various natural processes on our planet. Through this project, people gain the perspective to look at life from a scientific lens as opposed to the day-to-day socio-economic lens which unfortunately is skewed unfairly towards a human-centric view.
We create a friendly learning environment for students and adults where they can study, experiment and have meaningful conversations about the natural ecosystems, to which we all are so closely connected. As a part of this, we conduct workshops that include nature walks, field observations, data collection, its analysis, documentation and dialogues with experts that can help find broad correlations between different findings.
