India’s growing population and desire for economic growth makes climate-friendly investment a must. That’s why The Center for Sustainable Enterprise, with generous support from Quantum Advisors, has created a new global student competition, the India Impact Challenge powered by Quantum Advisors, inviting student teams from around the world to pitch ideas on how to tackle climate change in India. Early bird deadline is March 6, with finals on April 16 – 17.
Why India? India is currently the second most populous nation and, according to the United Nations, India is expected to surpass China as the world’s most populous around 2027. This presents challenges, but also enormous opportunity for investment in more climate-friendly growth in India to limit global warming.
The India Impact Challenge is for student teams interested in devising plausible investment strategies in India’s private sector to facilitate equitable growth, while limiting greenhouse gas emissions.
The competition is open to all students enrolled in an institution for higher education throughout the world at either the undergraduate or graduate level.
