I am Dipesh Acharya from Kathmandu, Nepal and I am here to support Sustainability Development Goal No. 4 Quality Education. I believe providing quality education for everyone solves a fundamental issue for many of the problems happening in the world right now which directly or indirectly relates to a lack of awareness. So, access to quality education in remote places will help make future generations, from an early age, aware of the global issues that truly matter.
Hi, this is Phanindra. A young passionate sustainability leader from Hyderabad, INDIA. I am the founder of the “Navagunjara Organisation”. Which strives to create awareness of mental health, especially in youth. In a country like INDIA, mental health is silently unspoken. when I wake up every single day and read about some other mental health issues faced by youth, it mostly included suicidal attempts and deaths. The pandemic hit so hard and made many psychological imbalances in the youth out there. I thought its high time to wake up and start to create awareness of mental health. Change doesn’t happen until change makes comes forward and starts to change, this is where a leader is born. I decided to be a leader and start to create awareness of mental health and break the stigma around it and I am continuing to do it.
