Eco Grants: Incubating Youth Ideas (2019-20)
Youth all over the world have always been dreamers and drivers of positive change. India is home to the world’s largest youth population between the age of 10-24 years and is expected to have 34.33% share of youth in the total population by 2020. ECO GRANTS seeks to harness this youth energy and enthusiasm to bring about a positive change in the ecosystem through their active participation. The present era of globalization and rapid changes make it vital to bring together organizations and individuals, who can develop innovative eco-friendly approaches to environmental challenges. The three partners (PVR NEST, Plan India and Centre for Youth) have stepped in with their strategic and organizational strengths to support innovative ideas of youth and will financially support the scalable green solutions, which can be replicated pan-India.
‘ECO GRANTS’ vision is far-reaching and will foster environmental sustainability for the people and by the people.
