Our current unfettered economic growth model is leading to immense environmental crises. The crises are in turn impairing human life in varying sectors such as health, security, and the economy. This compounding rate of negative consequences will inevitably be harsher if environmental expertise is not integrated into the decision-making process.

ECP takes young people through the process of becoming Planetary Stewards – citizens who are aware and knowledgeable of the world around us and take action to be its custodians, from their respective fields.



Selected fellows will undergo a uniquely designed year-long curriculum, training and mentorship on environmental stewardship.


Fellows will establish an Earth Club or Chapter at their respective institution and exercise leadership


To implement the learnings, fellows will develop and  execute  Environmental Action Projects

Curriculum Focus

The 3 key pillars of the ECP curriculum namely critical discourse, stewardship and justice takes a multidisciplinary and decolonial approach to nurture and develop the next generation of planetary stewards.
