CNM Education Reporter
 The Anant Fellowship for Climate Action has announced that applications have opened for the class of 2021. This unique multidisciplinary programme received over 1578 applications from 36 countries, for 20 seats last year. Some of the fellows of the founding cohort hold prominent positions in government or private firms, while others are Deans at universities, entrepreneurs, students. The first of its kind, the Fellowship has become one of the most sought after programmes internationally as it offers individuals ways to be part of the solution to mitigate climate change.

A Fellow in the founding cohort, Sigrid Vasconez, Advisor to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Human Mobility of Ecuador, said “When I found out about the Fellowship, what immediately caught my attention was the search for solutionaries. ‘Solutionaries’ brought me a very potent image of people that either individually or connected are finding ways in which to confront climate change across the globe. That thought of working, collaborating, and cooperating to bring about change, inspired me.”

The one-year Fellowship programme focuses on 3 pillars –

Change Management: Reshaping how we learn, work and live together to catalyze change for the good of society by faculty such as Devdutt Pattanaik (Author, India) and Lise Anna Bruynooghe (Director, Organisational Design, EBRD, UK).

Personal boosters: Individual coaching by some of the best coaches in the world at The School of Change, Switzerland. Mentoring to help Fellows achieve their objectives by an illustrious group of mentors including Laurence Tubiana (CEO of the European Climate Foundation, Chair of the Board of Governors at the French Development Agency), Adam Werbach (Global head for sustainable packaging, Amazon, USA), Chetan Maini (CEO, Sun Mobility), Dr. Arunabha Ghosh (founder-CEO, CEEW), Amer Vohora (Partner, VALUEworks AG, Switzerland), Mustapha Mokass (CEO, Beya Capital), Anoop Ratnakar Rao (Founder, ReLife and ex-CEO, Naandi), Dhaval Monani (Founder, First Home Realty Solutions Pvt.
