Who Are We?
Blue Nudge is an organisation focused on community engagement and education whilst tackling environmental challenges. We aim to instil a sense of environmental responsibility towards the planet within our students and encourage them to adopt a more sustainable way of living. Blue Nudge also facilitates the integration of waste management and sustainability topics into academic curriculums as well as a learner’s daily life. Hon. Alok Sharma President COP26 – UN Climate Change Conference launched the initiative at the British High Commission – New Delhi, India.
Blue Nudge is a simple yet effective way to reach the basic unit of a society, a household, via our students and thereby encourage entire families to start practicing waste segregation and recycling at home. Students gain crucial knowledge about sustainable ways of living and can earn a Planet Warrior Certificate by participating the initiative and successfully implementing its environmental programs.
Blue Nudge- Pathshala
Our programs are designed to motivate individuals to learn about and adopt sustainable lifestyles by introducing hard-hitting facts and information about current climate, environmental and social issues. These academic concepts, learning exposures and initiatives are intended to make people feel accountable to future generations and become individually and collectively responsible for their planet.
1. Collective Responsibility Drive
Collective Responsibility Drive – is a recycling focused initiative that aims to reach 10 million students via 20,000+ schools, colleges and universities with the goal of collecting 1 billion tonnes of dry waste and prevent it from going to landfills. The plastic materials collected will then be upcycled and turned into benches/chairs that can then be donated to government schools in India. High Commissioner of the Republic of Singapore, H.E. Mr. Simon Wong, Ms. Alice Cheng, Deputy High Commissioner of Singapore in New Delhi, launched this drive.
Introducing our young students to the concepts and practice of waste segregation at source and thereby to facilitate recycling will, over time, stimulate the much needed behavioral change required to help build a more sustainable world. To date, 100,000+ students have already become Planet Warriors by introducing and practicing waste segregation at source within their households and have already brought 4,000,000+ pieces of segregated plastic back to their schools including milk pouches and PET bottles as well as newspapers, cardboard and TETRA packs.
