We empower students to be change makers through various self organised projects that cover different sustainability aspects. These stretch from impacting sustainability on campus, including sustainability course in existing curricula, organising debates and workshops and case competitions on sustainability related subjects and connecting students to social enterprises and firms that actively implement sustainability in their work.

We have multiple projects running under us.

Project AYUDHA: We educate and train (skill-development) rural communities to manufacture Eco-friendly fashion accessories, apparel and home-decor items. We also connect them with markets. Our focus is on women to help them break the gender based stereotypes. Our aim through this project is to promote green jobs and to promote the culture of entrepreneurship in rural communities which would help them to attain financial independence.

Another Project under YSI is to spread awareness and to engage youth to take action for SDGs. We visit educational institutes to conduct sessions on SDGs and then the students are mentored and guided to take action for SDGs in their local communities. They work in groups and start a project based on their interested SDG.

Project STEP: We did a pilot project on testing an IQ-EQ based adaptive & interactive education system with more focus on practical knowledge along with theoretical knowledge. We believe education should be fun-based learning. We also focused on giving the results in the form of optimistic comments with graphs instead of grades which reduces the depression caused due to low grades. We also gave equal importance to extra-curricular activities and va;lue education. Students were involved in activities to promote SDGs along with studies. This pilot was successful and we plan to implement in large scale.

As of 2018, 132 million girls are not in school. Due to stigmas, poverty and menstruation. As long as girls and women are prevented from achieving their full potential, the world is only taking steps backward: Promoting gender equality and educating girls is key for the world to deliver on all SDGs. Through partnerships with some of the largest NGOs in the world, we develop educational games on Sexual and Reproductive Health as well as Mental Health, to educate and empower girls and boys(!) to make informed decisions about their own bodies and their own future.

YourLocal is a social enterprise that helps locals save money and reduce food surplus with their favorite neighborhood shops and restaurants. By connecting patrons & restaurants through the YourLocal app, restaurants can post their unsold food (up to 70% off) and alert nearby users who want to snag a tasty deal before day’s end. Simply review the deal, buy the meal, and pick it up at the shop before closing.

YourLocal exists to combat this through a simple and empowering solution. Each purchase made through YourLocal creates an opportunity to educate and remind our partners and users of the inherent value in their surplus food. When a YourLocaler buys a meal, they are reminded of the power to vote with their dollar. Each YourLocal offer they buy, immediately supports their community (by buying local) and environment (keeping food out of the landfill) - building momentum towards the next simple act of good.

As a next-gen electricity retailer, we are trying to make it easy, fair and fun to use electricity, make it tangible, and help you to become an active & conscious consumer.
We are striving to help our users, incl. those who are not (yet) customers), to understand how electricity works in DK: when is it expensive/cheap, when is it green/less green.
We do not make money on the distribution of electricity, only on a monthly subscription. Thereby, we are truly incentivized to help our customers consume less electricity.
Upcoming features:
- we will publish our API which will enable your connected (smart) appliances or your heat pump to turn on/off depending on when electricity is green/less green, or cheap/expensive
- we will be able to calculate your CO2 footprint related to your electricity consumption, and offer you the possibility to compensate/mitigate that CO2 footprint.

Connecting the Last Mile
The most important challenge in the world today and No 1 of the 17 UN Sustainable development goals for 2030 is “No Poverty”, lifting the remaining billion people above the poverty line.

Of those in poverty, the vast majority are in farming, fishing or part of their usually remote rural communities. Good organizations worldwide are investing trillions to address SDG1 but they struggle to reach and connect with these people efficiently.

You cannot eliminate poverty without solving financial inclusion, and you cannot address financial inclusion, at scale, without technology inclusion and digital identity.

ANOTHER ASPECT is born from a reaction to our excessive consumption of clothes. We seek another way of doing things than the fast fashion trends and tendencies. To not contribute to the throw-away culture, we develop products that inspire a thoughtful and sensible consumption.

By reconstructing the timeless items from the classic menswear wardrobe we generate everlasting styles with aesthetics and sustainability as the building blocks. Our styles can easily be changed according to the modern man’s daily needs based on his activity, personality, and environment.

Our dreams are that our customers will put in best endeavours when making decisions about their next purchase and keep our planet and its humans in mind. Hopefully also, that such an approach from consumers will have a contagious impact on the supply from the leading fashion companies.
