What are Ashoka Fellows teaching us about Climate Change mitigation?
To mitigate climate change, it is becoming clear that the work has to move beyond the science to policy and individual action. Ashoka Fellows are leading the way to show how cross-border collaborations and new consumer demands can address an issue that is bigger than all of us.
In the face of climate change, building resilient and sustainable communities and finding innovative pathways to improve natural resource management is of vital necessity. We have found in our analysis of Fellows elected in 2018 that fostering and strengthening bottom-up, entrepreneurial, and inclusive approaches is a key way to address the various facets and complexities of climate change. Our Fellows focus on both individual changes and more systemic, global collaborations to mitigate the effects today and to offer solutions for adaptation into the future.
