WHY ECP?

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.
