3M-CII Young Innovators Challenge Award 2016

Ideas for a better India
3M CII (Confederation of Indian Industry) is committed to identify and support a new generation of young leaders with ideas to tackle dire social problems.

India is experiencing an important moment in economic, skill and developmental growth. Government, public and private efforts and partnerships are being fostered to give impetus to the country’s holistic progress. This acceleration in the rate of growth is supposed to take care of both economic and social problems. However, as we progress, we are faced with new challenges to sustainability. There are some key issues such as inclusive growth, access to quality education and health, environment & resilience including sanitation, waste management and water, etc. that needs wider concerted efforts across the sectors to be able to create a healthy, sustainable and equitable leap for India.
