India's first climate action fellowship gives participants the chance to work with top climate pioneers in the world. The Fellowship is a unique one-year international climate education programme based on a mentor-mentee framework. It is designed to help fellows develop the skills required to lead large scale solutions to mitigate climate change. The first set of seven fellows for the 2022 cohort, announced, will arrive at the Fellowship, having already made a mark in their fields ranging from Microbiology and Biotechnology to AI and Data Science and Forestry and Environmental Sciences.
Dr Miniya Chatterji, Director of the Anant Fellowship for Climate Action and a sustainability expert, said: "The Fellowship programme for the academic year 2021-2022, has once again received an overwhelming response and applications from across the world which are open until September 18. We are very proud to announce the first set of 7 fellows for the 2022 cohort, an eclectic mix of climate solutionaries who have already held prominent positions in the government, private firms, and educational institutions. The Fellows will now be further scaling up their impact, with a powerful combination of knowledge and mentorship at the Anant Fellowship for Climate Action."
