India Environment Festival

INDIA ENVIRONMENT FESTIVAL

What started with a hustle filled one-day celebration by World Around You (WAY) in 2011, has now turned into India Environment Festival (IEF)- an absolute annual connect between people and environment. It will be a carnival of eco-passionate people to embrace a positive attitude towards sustainable and healthy environment through a multidisciplinary approach involving art, music, design, communication, music, craft, culture and technology. IEF is designed & delivered by WAY in close collaborations with local, regional, national & international partners from the public, private and community sector.
IEF will travel to different cities across India to engage a wide range of beneficiaries including students, artists, entrepreneurs, experts, academicians, professionals and government officials to actively contribute in addressing local environmental issues.




About WAY

WAY (World Around You), a brainchild of two nature loving, environmentally conscious friends – Wricha Johari & Prakshal Mehta, was conceived with a vision to bring about a behavioral change amongst people through the medium of developmental communication. Over the years, the idea has beautifully shaped into a self-sustaining and impactful social enterprise working towards the sustainable goals. Since 2009, WAY has been passionately connecting community with environment through its several innovative initiatives like WAY-Everything Connects, World Environment Day Festival, PenPals, Scookers, Free The Trees & Shopping for the Planet.
WAY has received several local and global applauds for these initiatives and due to such unique achievements and effective contributions to environment, the co-founders have been selected as Global Shapers by World Economic Forum (WEF), Young Connectors of the Future (YCF) by Swedish Institute and as Ahmedabad Heroes by Ahmedabad Mirror.

IEF’17 Activities

The 1’st edition of IEF will be hosted in Ahmedabad on the theme of “Being Waste Positive (W+ve)”. With reference to the national-level Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan, IEF’17 is focusing on changing public interest, perceptions and behaviours about waste from negative to positive.
In nature, nothing is waste; nature has its own means of recycling/upcycling its products. Based on the same principle, we wish to instill the concept of “Being W+ve” and set a paradigm of adopting positive practices of waste management at individual levels. Waste is a wealth of resource, and not a problem!
IEF’17 will witness more than 20 interesting activities for participants to experience waste through lens of science, art, craft, music, design, fun and learning. IEF’17 also brings the first of its kind exclusive green market called HARA PITARA to Ahmedabad.
