Project SEARCH (Sensitization, Education and Awareness on Recycling for a Cleaner Habitat) was initiated in 2009 by TERI and Tetra Pak with the intention of creating awareness amongst the school students, teachers and the school community including the principal, school administration and cleaning staff on waste. The idea was fairly simple – teach the target group about waste and link it to their daily lives.

The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and Tetra Pak India are proud to initiate ‘LEADearthSHIP' – a youth program for undergraduate and post graduate students from Delhi NCR and Pune.
LEADearthSHIP focuses on business and sustainability and aims to be the spring board for future youth leaders in India who have their world views deeply rooted in sustainability, ethics and co-existence. It is based on the belief that young people of the country must be engaged in ideation, innovation and action that would ensure holistic development of the nation.

Sweden - Use the existing electricity meter in order to clearly show power needs of your house, apartment or in your business
Your electricity meter is not only an energy meter, that records your electricity use in kWh (kilowatt hours) and that provides a basis for bills from your energy supplier and your network owners. It can also be used to identify different power outputs in kW (kilowatts) in the house, apartment or in a small company. Electricity meters will therefore be a very valuable tool to learn
power requirements for electrical equipment.
The sun is the Earth's biggest heat source but it can also give us electricity. In Jonkoping, we have since 2006 working to install solar cells and solar heat installations and today these are in operation on a dozen municipal facilities. Thanks early involvement the municipality could get a large portion of the solar cell support introduced in 2009, which ensures a strong continued expansion of solar power systems.
Today it's easier for a citizen to throw away things and buy new ones, than to let things get second life at another user. In the public sector and private companies it is the same! Thats not how to build a sustainable society.
But we have a solution!

We have been instructed by the government to conduct a focus on innovation procurement in the field of environmental technology. It will take the form of innovation contests and towards the procuring parties. The competition will be conducted in stages. Identified needs for innovations in local government have been done. Based on these, participants call for the competition. A range of innovations are made and winners are selected. The winners get the opportunity to test their innovations in test beds and will then receive support to make business plans.
About one fifth of the world's energy consumption goes to heating and cooling which largely comes from fossil fuels. The need for new ideas that solve both environmental and economic challenges are great. Climatewell's solution is a solar-powered heat pump that goes by the name SolarChiller. According to the company, it can simultaneously achieve three completely different goals. The decreasing emission of carbon dioxide because the pump does not require any fossil fuel and partly need no electricity since it exclusively use renewable solar energy. Together, this technology helps to reduce the cost of both those who want to warm up and for those who want to cool down their property.
NLAB Solar develops solar cells to mimic nature's way of converting sunlight into energy. But instead of chlorophyll, titanium dioxide is used to convert solar energy to green energy. The goal is building facades completely covered with transparent solar cells that generate both electricity and protects against burning rays.
Luxembourg Development Cooperation's (LuxDev) most important foreign project in the tourism sector – the Lao National Institute of Tourism and Hospitality, or LANITH – stands to revolutionise an industry that is vital to the future economic growth of one of Southeast Asia's poorest nations.
Set up in 2008 LANITH is helping to transform a sector that lags well behind that of neighbouring Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia or Myanmar. In 2012 tourism in Laos earned US$500 million in export revenues – behind only mining and hydropower. Yet Cambodia earned US$3.5 billion for a similar number of tourists. On average, Laos earns just US$50 per visitor – the lowest in Asia.
