Singular passion for environmental sustainability

His exemplary devotion to the Earth’s sustainability has had the legendary Polar explorer Robert Swan picking him for the prestigious International Antarctic Expedition 2015 along with World Leaders, Environmental Experts, and Youth Ambassadors to understand the continent’s delicate ecosystem and monitor the impact of climate change on its unique wildlife and landscape.

Unlike the usual environment crusaders, Ankit is pragmatic in his approach and belief. He states “the need of the hour is to work and develop solutions to meet people’s requirement for energy while simultaneously preserving the health of our planet. We have to duly acknowledge the increasing global challenges of the rising demands & tightening supplies. Awareness has to be created all around us and people should be educated about climate change and the express needs of green initiatives in everybody’s life.”

His first hand experience of Antarctica’s changing landscape and the deep understanding of the reasons for it in the human wanton ways and lopsided development has emboldened his desire and purpose for making the country and the world E Waste free.

As an environmental crusader he leads the ZeroWaste’s volunteering efforts and has been the energy in rallying youth to the cause of ZeroWaste Mission of E-Waste responsible management.

Spreading ZeroWaste awareness

Driving the much required ZeroWaste campaigns at various schools, colleges of Jaipur, he has been able to bring in consciousness through his street plays (nukkad nataks), relaying the message to the newer generation & imbibing participation and practicing of responsible disposal of electronic waste.

Building ambassadors of change

As an ambassador for Swan’s new initiative — South Pole Energy Challenge — of sustainable development, Ankit Taparia, has pledged to make a difference and contribute to sustainability in his own small way by encouraging the newer generation to achieve their dreams. He inspires the youth and encourages them to follow their dreams and to inculcate a belief of being the best agents of change the world needs.

Hopes of the future

As a part of the global expedition Ankit has engaged meaningfully with the next generation of global leaders to take environmental responsibility, policy development, facilitate sustainable business generation and enable future green technologies.

Today, he is well poised to lead the efforts of ZeroWaste amongst the youth and to the International communities. Kindling hopes for a brighter future for us all.

From the time we wake up till we say good night and in between electronic and electrical devices help us live comfortably. With time they wear down or with each technological upgrade we replace them with newer ones.

Therefore the leaders of tomorrow have to be made part and inducted into the processes.

Aiming for an ongoing success ZeroWaste has partnered with leaders, appointed franchisees and collection centres which in due course of time would give the required impetus to the efforts.

Since it is running on professional lines a well thought out strategically laid out system has been put in place. A series of training sessions and workshops are being conducted to impart the necessary understanding, skills and zeal, turning the cause into a viable social entrepreneurial programme.
