ReConnect Nature: To create a sustainable living awareness and promotion through information dissemination, practical knowledge transfer about environment protection with little steps for everyone including students, housewives, elders, professionals of all age groups so that through small conscious efforts we can make huge difference in the society. Knowledge will be imparted through practicable methods to change consciousness of an individual towards development for all. In turn by employing principles of sustainable development and sustainable consumption we can save our mother earth. This campaign results in the building of “Sustainable Consciousness” among everyone.
Action SDGs: To provide zero carbon emission training, consultancy services to industries and involve with them in their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program. Further, opportunities need to be explored to bridge the gap in this area for doing joint research, studies, and promotion of professional excellence with industries and academics. To cater the above we administer Sustainability Test for Universities, Institutions, Schools, and Organisations for their campus and practices for sustainable development, growth, and suggest ways for CSR linkages and collaborations to bridge the above gap.
Digital Learning Skill: Computer and ICT training for school, college students, women and senior citizen. Training for women and children living in the slum areas, Research on usage of computer, mobile with different abilities and environment
Beside this, we also motivate, guide children and youth from under-served group to learn different skills, to do open schooling for drop-outs, simultaneously practice and pick-up vocation interested to them.

Dry Leaf Management and Composting (2014-15): Research based project started in 2014 resulted in composting within 35 days - This can be done in three ways (a) Processing dry leaves through shredding process for faster conversion into compost, then mixing with cow dung sourced either from biogas plant output or direct dung, after that with the help of organic activator that result in organic compost (b) Processing dry leaves through shredding process then mixing with wood dust, sugar-cane jhag and preparing biochar – briquettes produced for use as fuel (c) Mixing with kitchen waste. We experimented with option a and c and come out with a hybrid approach for dry leaves and kitchen waste management that result in organic compost in reduced time - seeking funding for further implementation,
