Why am I an OPEN fellow?

I strongly believe in building culture of sustainability to save the ecosystem for future generation. Educating all stakeholders to adopt this culture is essential. I think OPEN platform is an enabler to create this culture and reach out to the entire community to drive this culture. OPEN fellows across the globe share their experience and knowledge on a common platform which creates collective wisdom on sustainability. I have been working in Higher Education from the last fourteen years and I had the opportunity to create programmes and interventions to engage students on sustainability related activities. In my current role, I am designing sustainability courses for working executives. Being part of the OPEN fellow, I will be able to wok with all my colleagues across the globe, exchange the ideas and co-create many programmes to build sustainability culture.

How can I help change agents?

I would like to work with educational institutions across the globe and support in developing programmes integrated with sustainability approach. I will connect with industry thought leaders and develop strategic programmes on sustainability thought leadership.
