Can Creating Climate Awareness lead us to the next APJ Abdul Kalam?

Can Creating Climate Awareness lead us to the next APJ Abdul Kalam?

From Ep35 The Climapreneur Show- In Conversation with Harshvardhan Joshi When we were organizing a solar camp at three villages which we electrified through Project Chirag and there one of the guys from IIT came and distributed 100 solar cookers, very simple solar cookers to six seven year old kids. We explained to them the science behind it for three four hours and we made them cook on it. So it was not about them making it, making the use of it and using it for years but the goal was that even if one of those kids is inquisitive…

Why everyone should Volunteer in a Cleanliness Drive at-least once in a lifetime?

Why everyone should Volunteer in a Cleanliness Drive at-least once in a lifetime?

From Ep35 The Climapreneur Show- In Conversation with Harshvardhan Joshi I will try to explain it with an example, so for example- If you volunteer for a plogging drive like a beach cleanliness drive or a mountain trail trash cleanliness drive you will have to bend down maybe 3000 times or at least a few hundred times in an hour to pick trash. And just once if you do that no matter what demographic you come from, which part of the society, you will never throw trash again. So that feeling of awareness and enlightenment comes from volunteering.  Similarly if…

Starting up and the money just doesn’t come up immediately or as planned. How do you keep yourself motivated?

Starting up and the money just doesn’t come up immediately or as planned. How do you keep yourself motivated?

From Ep14 The Climapreneur Show- In Conversation with Anuradha Parekh, Co-founder The Better India The thing that we have learned, and I think that we have demonstrated quite well is, the importance of persistence. I mean, something as huge and as important as climate action does not happen in a day, does not happen in a week or a month or a year. It is something that you need to work on, for decades together to see a sizable impact, a measurable impact happening.  So that's something, I think, we kind of knew when we signed up for being in…

If prices of fashion garments increased proportionally to real estate, it would have been the same price that you are paying for sustainable fashion.

If prices of fashion garments increased proportionally to real estate, it would have been the same price that you are paying for sustainable fashion.

From Ep11 The Climapreneur Show- In Conversation with Vino Supraja Sustainable fashion is unfortunately luxury. You know, why? See the inflation.  The money part, the economy part of the world. The price of everything has increased with real estate, automobiles or anything, the price of everything has increased. But if you see in fashion, if the prices have increased proportionally to the other things around, you? No! If the prices of all the fashion garments that we buy had increased proportionally to real estate or to everything around us, it would have been the same price that you're paying for…

What to do when your parents don’t understand your work in the Climate space?

What to do when your parents don’t understand your work in the Climate space?

From Ep14 The Climapreneur Show- In Conversation with Anuradha Parekh, Co-founder The Better India I think we need to see the perspective of our parents. The fact that such careers and such awareness did not exist, at their end or at that point of time is something that we need to be cognizant of, and empathetic towards.  I think it is really upon us, it's something that we need to undertake to help them understand that these are important subjects and these are really important actions that we need to take right now.  The thing is that I think our…

How can Climate Startups win the Distribution?

How can Climate Startups win the Distribution?

From Ep33 The Climapreneur Show- In Conversation with Aditya Ruia, Co-founder Beco I think it's mainly motivation. The bigger companies with established distribution channels have also built their distribution over years. So any new company or even a startup cannot think that they can do that overnight. I think a lot of hard work and patience is required.  But the primary point of action is motivation. You need to be motivated that the problem that you're solving is big enough, you're really trying to solve it, you are motivating a lot of customers and educating them to buy such products.…

Sustainable Agriculture- A Huge Opportunity

Sustainable Agriculture- A Huge Opportunity

From Ep38 The Climapreneur Show- In Conversation with Daniel Hartz, Founder Sustainability Champions “First of all, people need to eat. So agriculture will always be a part of our lives. Sustainable agriculture, I think, is a major player in moving towards a sustainable future.” There's a few interesting things that are happening in agriculture.  Number one is the movement towards more Regenerative Style Farming. That's where you really work with nature to farm. I think it's brilliant because you see the biodiversity going up on farms, the soil starts to heal. There's so much good that comes from it. And it…

Whether you like it or not, you will be working in the Climate Economy most likely in the next 10-15 years.

From Ep37 The Climapreneur Show- In Conversation with Anshuman Bapna, Founder Terra.do "Whether you like it or not, you will be working in the Climate Economy most likely in the next 10-15 years."-Climate Economy- Once-in- a- lifetime opportunity, maybe even bigger than the Internet. The question that I would ask everyone is that do you feel that you individually who's listening to this podcast have somehow a stake in the internet economy today? It might be to the extent that, look, I can't live my life without ordering food on Zomato, right?  But then you have a stake in the…
