About Amrita Vasudha

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. When Chancellor Amma spoke at the United Nations in July 2015, she stated, “I often reflect deeply on the future of the Earth, the preservation of nature, and the disappearing harmonybetween humanity and nature. This contemplation has led me to the conviction that science, technology, and spirituality must unite in order to ensure a sustainable and balanced existence of our world. The presentage and the world around us demand this transformation.”

The Amrita Vasudha Initiative at Amrita seeks to be a resource and a force that provides knowledge, energy, motivation and inspiration to the stakeholders of the organization/institution, in turn enabling them to be supportive of, and engaging in, sustainable ways of living, and thereby also more effectively participating in, and contributing to, the democratic process of governance (in India).
