IEF’17 Aftermovie



IEF is conceived & delivered by WAY (World Around You) in close collaborations with local, regional, national & international partners from the public, private and community sector. The selection of festival curators, theme, activities, venue décor and eco-friendly brands reflects a sincere effort towards the need for a positive knowledge, attitude and practices of environment amongst people.




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.
