Green Panther was born out of the necessity to connect children with nature and their surrounding environment on an everyday basis. Green Panther offers uniquely designed fun-based workshops, nature exploration kits and activities for kids which aid in self-learning & self-exploration of their surroundings.
Natural ecosystems are everywhere around us, even in the densest human settlements, and kids can explore & learn about them if provided with the right tools & resources. We all know how important it is to be one with nature but with the increasing urbanisation, the disconnect is evident. How can we expect the next generation to care for something which they don’t associate with?
We have zestfully designed nature/environment-based learning resources to encourage outdoor nature play among kids to boost their curiosity, observation skills and be one with nature.
Imagine a world where children experience the joy of being in nature before they learn of its loss – Richard louv
A world in which children play, learn and grow with nature in their everyday lives
Humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature & kids are being deprived of this basic need unconsciously. Our aim is to make nature-play a part of every urban kids' routine and by doing so let them learn & bond with nature and environment

A scientist’s brain and an artist's heart is what defines Shruti Jha – Founder of Green Panther! Growing up, she had a keen interest in biology as well as creative arts. A long due desire to work around nature started to take shape while she was involved with her little one’s development. She realised the lack of nature-play and her small initiatives in this direction led to the creation of Green Panther - a place where finally her brain and heart found a common ground. She now loves brain-heart-storming to come up with new ideas on how she can connect kids with nature creatively in everyday activities.
