FELLOWS 2022-23


Inspire. Empower. Nurture.

YouCAN is a non-profit initiative that conducts short-term and long-term programs for middle school students, youth and teachers to become environmentalists. We use multimedia storytelling and experiential learning to inspire, empower and nurture students and youth to protect and restore the natural world.

The reason – The Planet’s Health is Our Health. We must do everything needed to revive the wellness of the planet and its people through determination, courage and imagination.

Earth Educators Fellowship

The Earth Educators Programme is a fellowship that brings together young volunteers for the environment, emerging conservationists and school teachers. They embark on an 11-month journey to explore the natural world, curate immersive learning experiences for students, build skills, and a community to lead conservation 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.
