Rozita Singh, a sustainable development professional who has committed her life towards the service of the planet for the past 13 years has been chosen among hundreds of candidates to join the 2041 Climate Force Antarctic Expedition in March 2022. A graduate in Journalism and currently resides in New Delhi. She pursued the world’s very first Masters in Sustainable Development Practice course that was launched at TERI School of Advanced Studies in India. Singh is presently the Head of Solutions mapping in UNDP India’s Accelerator Lab which is part of the world’s largest and fastest learning network on innovations for SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).
Singh works to scout and scale the most impactful innovations in social and environmental domains with her 90 other counterparts across 114 countries. As a sustainable development practitioner, her vision and contribution has been in terms of ‘connecting the dots’ wherever she goes and breaking the culture of silos.
For decades, the effects of climate change have been more and more visible in the Antarctic: glaciers and ice shelves melting and breaking off prematurely, sea ice disappearing, critically disrupted ecosystems and food chains, and more. A 50 year treaty prohibiting any kind of resource exploitation in Antarctica ends in 2041. Sir Robert Swan, the first person to have walked to both the North and South Poles, started the ”2041” Foundation to spread solutions to mitigate climate change, to bring attention to Antarctica’s present condition, and to create leaders by 2041 to protect this treaty.
This expedition is an opportunity for participants to connect and learn from the natural environments most affected by climate change, and to realize the urgent need for real-world solutions to address these issues.
Mr Ranganath Thota, Founder of Fueladream.com which has pioneered crowdfunding programs in India says, “It is a delight to see that Rozita’s campaign is getting great traction and support so very quickly. It shows that crowdfunding is coming of age In India and that funders are willing to support causes of this nature which will finally impact future generations.”
Rozita Singh, who is all set to participate in the 2041 Climate Force Antarctica Expedition said; “I am so grateful to have support from so many who believe in my mission. I want to take all these voices together with me to Antarctica where we will start working on a solution-oriented program to fight climate change. The time is NOW to make a big impact on all organizations in the planet- for fighting climate change. It’s a matter of pride for me to be one of the selected few who will represent India and wave the flag in the southern most continent of the world!”
