Ashish is the founder of Green Dream Foundation, a NGO based in New Delhi, India. He he also worked in ‘Customer Success’ leadership positions across different corporates for over 10 years.
His mission has been to create an educational and socially responsible advocacy platform for people to empower and engage their peers in environmental activities to ensure a healthier, cleaner and more sustainable planet for businesses, customers, employees, homeowners and families. As a young person, he realized that “not-knowing-how-to-get-things-done” was restricting young people from ‘taking the plunge’ and standing up for issues they felt deeply about. He felt a strong urge to develop a platform for young people across the world to synchronize their approach towards addressing these issues. His will to fight for the odds against the environment sowed the seeds of the Foundation.
Green Dream Foundation (GDF) was founded in March 2008. GDF is focused on generating awareness about environmental issues through effective channels. It engages with communities through social media primarily Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and also conducts workshops and seminars in person to educate people and then measure results. It facilitates steps that help reduce carbon footprint so not just education but also ‘end to end consultation’ as Ashish believes that learning should be followed by real action. GDF also supports companies with their CSR initiatives that really make a long lasting impact both in terms of education / awareness and actual impact on the environment and society.
In 2012, Ashish appeared at a TEDx event in India. His talk was called “Taking the Road Less Traveled – Going Green”. He pointed towards the ‘Why’ to go green instead of just the ‘How’.
He has delivered educational seminars at reputed forums like Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi University, MENA Solar Power Forum etc.
