Meaningful Learning and Holistic Living Advocate

I am an education consultant and a holistic living advocate, with over a decade’s experience in leading meaningful learning interventions. I have worked extensively with students, teachers, education leaders as well as parents, towards the common vision of creating a learning mindset. I believe that education system across the world needs to change and evolve into a personalized learning system that allows individuals and societies to emerge as empathetic learners that collaboratively work towards making this world a more hopeful and happier place. I have a MBA degree from University of Roehampton, London and a certificate in Design Thinking from MIT.
As an advocate for holistic living, I am on a mission to create micro communities that facilitate meaningful relationships, healthy environment, and sustainable living. In my pursuit to create a happier and healthier life, I have left city life and am currently living on a farm in a village in South India. Me and my partner have setup a Permaculture farm and a handicrafts unit using sustainable building practices. In next 5 years we envision to create a happy and sustainable living community around us which would act as a model for many such communities in future.
I am founding partner of Liv Greene Handicrafts which is a design and production space that creates hand-crafted home products under the brand name Nugu.
I am also involved in setting up an alternate learning space for children in Mysore by the name of Natural Learners. This learning space intends to create meaningful, personalized and self-directed learning experiences for children.
