About Wipro earthian
At Wipro, we have endeavored to work on both educational challenges and ecological sustainability issues, both within our organization and outside. From the natural intersection of our work in these domains comes the need to support and drive sustainability thinking and action, through facilitating the learning process in schools and colleges across India.
This was the genesis of the Wipro earthian program, an annual program, the first edition of which was launched in April 2011. Since then it has seen the participation of over 13,000+ schools in 29 states, 31 districts and 3 Union Territories in the country. This program is positioned distinctly – both in structure and expected outcomes. In the first phase of the program, schools and colleges submit an entry on a theme within sustainability. The 20 best entries from schools receive awards and 20 entries make it to the shortlist. Subsequently Wipro earthian and its partners engage with the winning schools and colleges as a part of the Continuous Engagement Program (CEP) to increase the space provided to sustainability education within the institution.
