#39 We have all the ingredients to effect action for climate change more than we had ever before
/

We are one of the third largest startup ecosystem in the world. But more importantly, in the last four years, or five years, we have risen from a global innovation index of 81, to a position of 46. Now, that’s an amazing growth. But I personally believe that we are in India, because of the focus on education that we have had, 1.4 million schools, 10,500 engineering institutions, 39,000 colleges, and 150 million young students entering into the workplace. And we have the need, the need for innovation, and the need for entrepreneurship. So we need climapreneur, climate entrepreneur,  we need people who are going to become entrepreneurial, and are going to create entrepreneurs solutions, keeping climate change in minds, and retreating and re-emphasising that a solution which does not promote climate friendly or sustainable solutions is not a solution to be pursued.
