Shweta’s lifelong passion and obsession are environment and education. She is living her passion through her work at Unmukt Foundation. Before dedicating her life to Unmukt, Shweta used to be a successful architect focusing on healthcare architecture. For the last three years she’s been doing very little architecture related work with all of it focused upon bamboo, mud and sustainable architecture. Her goal in life today, is to create an Ecoversity – a University dedicated to ecological study, awareness and research. She imagines a world where every child is educated with care, according to his or her unique needs, where each child is encouraged to do what he or she is good at, where creativity and curiosity are encouraged, where environmental consciousness is embedded into life and not just as a minor chapter.
