The earth is this majestic force that controls every single thing in this world and before we know it, it will be gone. The UN has been advocating to the governments and corporates for environmental action for decades, surely there was something missing. Kamakshi explains how Passion, Purpose and Pursuit shall be a game changer. We have now reached a point where it is no longer up to only people in positions of power to take action, the responsibility falls on each one of us.
