About My Choice! My Choice! is a project that aims to raise awareness among Indian young generation about Sustainability Issues. We offer to deliver a holistic understanding of Sustainability seen as People, Society and Environment. For us, Environment is impacted by human footprint; human footprint is the results of community interactions (economy, leisure, family) in Society, Society activism is shaped by embedded values in the people that are part of the society. It is vital for Youth to grab this inclusive picture if we call on more responsibility from them. We believe in Responsible Choices. We also believe that NOW is an ideal time to empower Indian youth to Change. To challenge their mindset; to explore ways to act that account more and more for the environment, society and world that they live in. Our challenge is to create interactive learning environments that enable the future decision and opinion-makers of India to become responsible citizens, empowering them to act and inspire others to act sustainably.
