Volunteer Environmentalist, INDIA
“A good listener; is enthusiastic about everything” is how a long time friend describes Sagar.
Sagar is totally committed to working in the field of renewable energy and environmental engineering which lies at the core of Earth5r. He has worked on projects like Energy Conservation at a Refinery, Biodiversity, Hydro-Electric power plants and Solar Power set-up.
Sagar believes, our future on earth depends on how light we tread and not how well we exploit! This translates to optimum utilization of the inexhaustible resources. He feels, identifying energy hotspots and tapping them is the need of the hour. Conducting energy audits, providing greener options is what he intends to do.
He has always used his communication skills to his advantage. He has the ability to connect with all kinds of people. Even though the technical field has always been Sagar’s strength, he has a creative edge to him. He demonstrates this through Photography, which he loves and uses as a tool, to exhibit his ideas.
Sagar has an unquenched thirst for knowledge which takes him to the how and what of everything. This has resulted in him winning various quiz competitions, the most recent being the business quiz and the debate competition of National Entrepreneurship Challenge, 2014.
A third year engineering student at Datta Meghe College of Engineering in Navi Mumbai, he has interned at BASF India Ltd., Bharat Petroleum Corp. Ltd. and Omkar Speciality Chemicals Ltd.
A sports-person too, his love for swimming became well recognized after he won a bronze medal for Water Polo. Another interesting hobby of his is star gazing.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money? The time to act is NOW.
