NEW YORK, Oct. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Young social entrepreneurs continue to be torchbearers for the climate movement. In Net Zero Speaks with Udit Singhal, Climate Activist Priyanka Prakash interviews sustainability champion Udit Singhal. Singhal is the founder of Glass2Sand, an environmentally-friendly "carbon-negative" initiative and "no glass to landfills" movement that he established in 2018 at age 16. He was recognized for his contributions and selected as a UN Young Leader for the SDGs 2020-22 at 17. Pedagogical experts have continued to argue that social entrepreneurship provides learners with critical competences to flourish in a 21st century world. Singhal reflects in Net Zero on the valuable knowledge and skills he gained from his journey so far.
"You must muster the courage to move through the hurdles to chart the way forward," says Singhal. "I've learned that you can't just wait for something to happen. You have to lead people your way, and I've also had the opportunity to strategize closely with various UN organizations to encourage solution-driven youth-led Climate Action."
