The meticulously curated design-led event featuring 30+ artists and collaborators is being held at a 75 year old factory on the Godrej & Boyce Vikhroli campus, witnessed the gathering of creative minds from across industries who came together to help reimagine a more sustainable future and act as ambassadors to build a greener and more sustainable planet for future generations.

Mr Jamshyd N Godrej, Chairman & Managing Director, Godrej & Boyce, who has been long a vocal proponent of sustainable business said, “Climate crisis is here, and we need to act now. The only way to do this is as a collective force. It’s important for every individual, corporation and government body to think and act towards scalable initiatives that are necessary to foster a more sustainable future”.

Nyrika Holkar, Executive Director, Godrej & Boyce, commented on the platform, "Our thoughts and actions have an impact on ourselves, our families, the community and the planet. This power can be multiplied manifold if it can be harnessed ‘Collectively’. By taking sustainable living beyond boardrooms and into the community of professionals, we can collaborate to re-imagine our cities and start a new era of design-led sustainable innovations".
As an organization that has always been in the forefront of partnering with academia to build a more self-reliant nation, Godrej & Boyce has collaborated with students once more to present unique installations that showcase the need for immediate action against climate through the lens of students.
