Hyderabad: The brand new initiative under Project SEARCH which encourages students to become social entrepreneurs. Project SEARCH, a joint initiative by The Energy and Resource Institute (TERI) and Tetra Pak is now promoting social entrepreneurship in schools through its programme ‘Vasundhra’.


Project SEARCH encourages young students and teachers to practice the 4Rs – refuse, reuse, reduce and recycle – in their daily lives that would ensure the sustainability of the planet in the years to come. In 2014 Project SEARCH was recognised by UNESCO as one of the 5 ‘Good Practice Stories on Education for Sustainable Development’ in India.


UNESCO’s Senior Programme Specialist (Natural Sciences) Mitrasen Bhikajee who attended the ceremony as chief guest congratulated TERI and Tetra Pak for their relentless efforts towards educating young minds about sustainable development. “These budding entrepreneurs have undertaken the pledge towards creating a green and healthy environment which is inspiring to all ages,” he added.


Ranjana Saikia, Director, TERI, thanked Tetra Pak for their support and commitment towards environment education. She further added “During our sixth phase of Project SEARCH, we worked with schools across cities wherein we collected a total of 47 tons of waste. As we begin with seventh phase of Project SEARCH, we plan to expand our outreach and connect with over 300,000 students and teachers across locations through our newly launched website.”
