Hands-on circulareconomy learning project in India

Hi Precious Plastic community,

My name is Peter Wang Hjemdahl, and I am a 2018 grad from Wharton @ UPenn and co-founder of rePurpose, a Mumbai-based social enterprise dedicated to bringing hands-on circular economy education to 50 million underprivileged school children in India. We received the 2018 President’s Engagement Prize in March, a $200K grant given to graduating students that enabled my team and me to move to India to pursue this venture full-time.

We are seeking collaborators in India and across the world as we head into the pilot phase with the Precious Plastic-inspired concept attached below. We are looking for people who are skilled in hardware design/mechanical engineering and/or knowledgeable on pedagogy/environmental education.

Thanks and please email me at peter@repurpose.global if you are interested!
