Globally, climate change and environmental degradation are enormously complex challenges, but combating them starts with small local steps. Learn how Enactus SRCC, a student-led not-for-profit organization in India is working to combat these global challenges through their innovative projects with ambitious goals. Interact with these youth leaders as they reflect upon their experiences of implementing globally recognized projects in the realms of climate change, water conservation and green jobs.

Explore the journeys and impacts of their projects including Project Leher, an endeavor to save the world’s oceans by up-cycling toxic cigarette butts into utility products, Project Amal, an initiative to prevent stubble burning by turning stubble waste into smokeless biochar briquettes, Project Asbah, an endeavor to provide clean drinking water to urban slums and rural households and Project Virasat, an initiative to sustainably revive India’s dying craft forms.
