WHAT DOES THE FELLOWSHIP ENTAIL?

Sessions 1-8: fellows will attend 2-hour sessions via zoom twice a week where we will be discussing an array of topics surrounding the key theme of environmentalism, such as circular economies and climate refugees.

These sessions will be led by the ACTION team in India, in addition to outside speakers from other organizations and/or businesses; including many interactive activities, such as debates, discussions, workshops and more!

Sessions 9-12: learning how to utilize your strengths in order to be a leader.

These 2 hour biweekly sessions will include personal workshops with world leaders, the basics of initiative planning, entrepreneurial skills, and how to engage others with your passions. This will create a strong foundation for the fellows, as they begin to brainstorm and plan their initiative. 

Final 2 Months: students will run an initiative of their choosing using all of the skills they've learned in this fellowship, in addition to assistance from their own ACTION mentor. More details about the independent initiative are in the FAQ page.
