About the Book:
The Climate Actioneers’ Primer has been created to achieve an array of objectives. It follows the concept of ‘show and tell’, where actions are demonstrated not only as ideas, but as case studies, wherever possible. It provides a holistic view of climate change-related challenges backed by in-depth research. It elucidates the interconnectedness of issues that are mostly seen in silos. Policies and academic research are often loaded with scholastic language and complicated processes which cannot be pursued by a common citizen. The Primer is a collection of sustainable and measurable climate solutions presented in a simple manner, verified by people, experts and practitioners. It provides notes on achievable and successful ideas implemented in different parts of the world that can be contextualised and implemented within a given geography.
The idea is also to initiate cross-sectoral dialogues and bring actors together for collective action wherever possible. It should also raise greater awareness amongst different stakeholders. The solutions can be taken up by students, activists, policymakers, planners, environment enthusiasts, corporates, subject experts, industry or those who recognise they have a stake in the future.

Amruta Padgaonkar has a deep passion for exploration - especially in nature and food. Her journey into the natural world began during childhood, fostering her interest in birdwatching. Alongside her academic pursuits, earning a Bachelor's degree in Zoology and a Master's degree in Life Science (Biochemistry), she dedicated six years to working as a Nature Educator at SPROUTS. Amruta also volunteered her time to educate underprivileged individuals of all ages through nature trails, workshops, and clean-up drives. She takes pride in her collection of owl-themed items, reflecting her love for these birds. With her current role at Early Bird, Nature Conservation Foundation (NCF, Bangalore), she hopes her passion for birds & working to popularise them, comes full circle!
