Hita Unnikrishnan, a Masters student in Life Sciences at the Mount Carmel College in Bangalore and a British Council Environmental Champion, believes that climate change has to be addressed at the individual level.
Hita is a strong believer in local, renewable ways of producing energy and has worked on decentralised models of waste management and power generation.
She takes us to the thriving Indian industrial cities of Bangalore and Chennai, where she encounters significant opposition to her views but is determined to prove that localised solutions can work in the cities and not just in rural villages.
