" When we embrace life, we become alive. Doing by bit through small steps helps me become alive. I find the beauty of life in being compassionate and sensitive to others. Nature has taught and given me all that I hold dear, I want to spend my time giving it back all the more. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Advaita
In this project, we will base our conversations on 3Rs i.e. Realize, Reunite, Reiterate with regard to aiming a non-dualistic approach towards nature. We will hold webinars and online events on various themes pertaining to nature, like policy-making, art, films, philosophy, sustainability, menstruation, feminism, mental health, etc, mapping out the diverse means we, as a species, have used to connect with nature. This project will also give a platform to the voices of various climate leaders who are working, at their individual level, towards climate justice. Our approach will be purely action-based and we aim to impact qualitatively.
