FELLOWS 2022-23


Inspire. Empower. Nurture.

Environmental apathy is the root cause of the climate crisis. Still, most of India’s largest demographic - the 260 million K-12 students complete school without connecting with nature and knowing the intricacies of climate change. That’s why YouCAN functions as a mission-driven non-profit organisation founded with the vision of an Earth Educator in every school and learning space in India. We improve opportunities for K-12 students to connect with nature locally and practice climate action during their formative years.

Earth Educators Fellowship

The Earth Educators Programme is a fellowship that brings together emerging environmentalists, school teachers and informal educators. They embark on a year-long journey to explore the natural world, curate immersive learning experiences for students, build skills, and a community to lead climate action in their locality. 

Nature Quest @ Rivendell is a nature experience space and community learning centre at Hulical, Nilgiris, India. Set up in the woods overlooking the Western Ghats Mountains, it will be a place for families to reconnect with nature and children to explore the wonders of the natural world. It will spread joy into the lives of young people, help them reflect, find themselves, and find a place for nature in their lives.
