Environment is something we are very familiar with. It's everything that makes up our surroundings and affects our ability to live on the earth - the air we breathe the water that covers most of the earth's surface, the plants and animals around us, and much more.

Having realised the gravity of the situation an initiative to sensitize the people at grassroots level, with special focus on the younger generation, was taken and DEEKSHA, was conceptualised and launched as an institution to disseminate the message of environmental protection and conservation amongst the people of our country.

Our initiatives include research, campaigns, policy interventions, building capacity among those engaged in recycling, and creating awareness about the need for reduced consumption and better waste management among the middle and upper classes.

We won't have a society if we destroy the environment.
Margaret Mead
