With Doing Your Bit, we want to establish a platform where individuals and organisations, from all over the country, are showcased for their purposeful and innovative solutions towards sustainability. As Doing Your Bit returns for a second season, we want to continue to feature such endeavours. The first season saw many inspiring from across the country of eco-heroes and warriors doing their best to make their community greener and more sustainable.

The second chapter of Doing Your Bit invites storytellers to capture and present a story of change that they’ve been a part of or have been witness to, through a video. The initiative aims to curate videos that offer diverse perspectives and innovative solutions. Participants can share video stories illustrating their contribution in making their community more sustainable.

The theme for this season is — Innovations for A Better Tomorrow. The theme covers topics such as:

+ Sustainable farming practices

+ Garbage disposal & waste management

+ Controlling/managing smog

+ Green buildings/infrastructure etc.

The contest will reward the winners with 2 prizes, the Jury Award with a cash prize of Rs. 1,50,000 and a Popular Choice with a cash prize of Rs. 50,000. The popular choice winner will be decided by the entry that gets maximum engagement on the Eco India Community on Facebook.
