MUMBAI: Being indoors has made us realise just how energising it is to be outdoors and has given us another reason to be a lot more compassionate towards our planet. The year gone by also made us take notice of the sweeping environmental crisis, pushing us to work towards building a better tomorrow for the next generation. There is a dire need to elevate the voices of the youth and drive them towards a positive call for action as their small steps today can make a big difference in the future.

In line with this belief, Sony BBC Earth is launching its IP Young Earth Champions in partnership with actor Bhumi Pednekar, who is a strong advocate of environmental conservation through her flagship initiative – Climate Warrior. Together, via this nationwide contest for all climate-conscious students, Sony BBC Earth and Bhumi Pednekar are presenting a platform that not only recognises and rewards innovative ideas but also inspires the young minds of India to think about a better and a more sustainable future.

Backed with an intent to inspire kids to be catalysts for conservation early on, the contest will be open for fifth to ninth standard kids who have to send in entries for the most innovative ideas that will make our cities and communities more sustainable. Bhumi Pednekar, along with an expert, will judge this initiative and select one lucky Young Earth Champion who will be featured on the channel. Not only that, the top ten winners will get to virtually interact with Pednekar and have an invigorating conversation on doing our bit in preserving the Earth and co-existing with it.

Sony Pictures Networks India English cluster business head Tushar Shah said, “It gives us immense pleasure to join hands with climate warrior Bhumi Pednekar for Young Earth Champions and together present a platform for the young minds to voice their innovative ideas for a sustainable future. Through positive and insightful storytelling, Sony BBC Earth has always aimed at creating awareness about the importance of safeguarding the natural world and environment. This initiative is just another step towards educating young minds about the power they have to bring about that change; thereby encouraging them to work towards a better tomorrow.”

Pednekar added, “Climate change is upon us, and it's real. Through my initiative of 'Climate Warrior', I diligently try to highlight the seriousness of the crisis and its repercussions. I am glad that Sony BBC Earth echoes the same beliefs and with Young Earth Champions is offering a great platform to trigger exchange of creative ideas among kids, who have the power to bring about change. I am looking forward to an encouraging participation from incredible, young talents and a stimulating discussion about a sustainable future.”
