Gowri Madhusoodhanan, Climate leader, CLP 2019
The climate leadership program 2019 brought a platter full of amazing humans, disruptive ideas and the best ever synergy to work towards a world where "green is the new sexy" lifestyle.
In one way it made me open my eyes in how efficient the behavior and technologies were in the pre industrial era of my state. It showed and proved how we humans could live a life of satisfaction in harmony with nature. I hope the upcoming leaders could put in some of those thoughts into action.
Gowri is now pursuing her PGDM in Rural management from IRMA
