Each year CERES Global spends 6 weeks in India and invites interested people to join us on a socio-environmental and cultural journey focused on mutual learning and exchange. As a past participant explains, “I took away a sense of humanity of possibility, a beautiful sense of how big the world is”.

CERES Global works with communities and organisations in India to generate solutions that are community driven and meet the needs identified by members of the community. Project sustainability is a key aspect of successfully engaging with communities and projects are designed and implemented with these principles in mind.
