Abhishek, who is pursuing chemical engineering from IIT-D has drafted the vision for NITI Aayog and wants to work towards climate change.

New Delhi: A fourth year student of IIT-Delhi has been selected to participate in a 14-day “International Antarctic Expedition”, being hosted by the “2041 Foundation” from February 27 to March 12 2018, where participants will gain knowledge about prevailing issues of climate change, renewable energy, and sustainability. Abhishek, who is pursuing chemical engineering from IIT-D has drafted the vision for NITI Aayog and wants to work towards climate change. He has his own city-wide initiative to address the issue of waste management in his city. “Besides gaining knowledge about the prevailing issues, we will learn about how it affects our present and future worldwide, along with a better understanding of the continent’s fragile ecosystem, experience its unique wildlife and observe the magnificent landscape of Antarctica,” the IIT-D student said.

Abhishek has been working with a member of Parliament, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat from Jodhpur and has also worked alongside the core team to draft the vision statement of “Mission Antyodaya” where they worked to provide the Government, PMO, ministries and NITI Aayog. However, in order to make it to the expedition, the engineering student is seeking supporters through the crowd funding online platform, Ketto, Asia’s most-visited crowdfunding platform with the largest funding community. “I want to join the expedition because I support the vision of global sustainable development. I would want to stretch my horizon in terms of my vision, experience and limit of purity in my attitude while contributing to the environment in whatever I do,” Abhishek added. The organisation 2041 was founded by polar explorer, environmental leader, and public speaker Robert Swan, OBE. As the first person in history to walk to the North and South Poles, Mr. Swan has dedicated his life to the preservation of Antarctica by the promotion of recycling, renewable energy, and sustainability to combat the effects of climate change. – Courtesy
