Arushi Madan

International Diana Award

Known as the “Green Machine” because of her great passion for the environment, Arushi takes every opportunity to spread awareness about the need to protect the environment and reduce waste. Arushi is an Environment Ambassador to the Middle East with Tunza Eco Generation (a joint venture between Samsung Engineering and UNEP) and President of youth community group Students for the Earth. She is on a mission to inspire and empower the next generation to get involved in environmental action and to lead others into a greener future.

Arushi has visited schools using a mix of media, games, quizzes, and ‘Green Talk’ discussions to bring environmental awareness to the next generation. She campaigns at food courts, cafeterias and other public food retail areas about food waste. She teaches school students about the benefits of organic farming, has organised educational trips for young people to sustainable buildings and other green sites. Arushi has persuaded factories to recycle packing material and has led a project that recycled tyres into furniture.
