MUN Impact student leaders will review an easy process for helping you plan an SDG Impact project in your community and then time to work in small groups to craft a plan of action.

Global Shaper Keynote Speaker: Abheejit K

 My work is multifarious in nature spanning inclusive innovation, space research, and entrepreneurship. The words that define my persona are – Dreamer. Innovator. Orator. Traveler. Poet. Batman.

After exploring several roles in the past decade, I found my passion to work on inclusive projects that use technology to improve lives. I ran two EdTech Startups, served as a fellow for Clean India Mission, built a regional startup community of over 5000 people. Tying everything together, in 2018, with my mentors I formed the Vruksh Ecosystem Foundation, a non-profit focusing on building a culture of innovation, problem-solving, and entrepreneurship in underserved geographies to solve local problems and #BuildTheFuture.

I also serve the GS Nagpur Hub as an Impact Officer, leading the Social Entrepreneurship project & recently concluded the COVID Accelerator project under the hub.
