Qualifications: M.Sc. Environmental Sustainability, The University of Edinburgh, UK
Profile: Sanjana graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a Masters in Environmental Sustainability in 2018. Before this, she was almost certain that she would go on to pursue a career in environmental policy-making – a plan she had mapped out at least a decade before. However, over the course of her education, her approach to environmentalism evolved and she became increasingly drawn to bottom-up, grassroots action that places communities and their needs at the centre of positive environmental change. She is primarily interested in exploring the potential for environmental education, community engagement and deliberative democracy to improve environmental planning and governance in India.
As a part of the fundraising team at Dakshin, Sanjana is involved with institutional fundraising, developing proposals, tracking donors, and conducting prospect research. She is also currently carrying out research that combines Dakshin’s programmatic priorities with her fundraising work.
