    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers love the country. The cultural and landscape diversity it has to offer is something unmatchable. But there is one thing which stays same across the country - the waste situation. Living and working with the team fighting with the waste will give you insight of how this small team is trying to change the waste scene in India bit by bit. You will also get to experience, understand and interact with our team who come from all walks of life and take care of different needs in waste management from actual cleaning to brain storming.
    Dehradun being an hill town and historic town is home for alot of bio diversity and architecture which may be of interest to many.

  • Help

    Help

    We have three projects across India. While our Dharamsala project accepts all kind of help, Dehradun being a head office and urban model requires very specific help. If you are an artist, digital nomad(good with designs, photography, website, social media), a good story teller, planner, strategist, thinker, sustainability nerd, we would love to host you.
    Please check our website and let us know if you can help in any other way or you have experiences which may come handy in improving what we do here.
    We are also exploring composting and urban gardening solutions.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are 5 kms away from city centre towards rural Dehradun. A very quiet place and perfect location to access city and mountains. In one's free time, walking is the perfect thing I see. If you have day off, you can go hiking and if you have a couple of days, trekking and camping is just a few hours way.
