In the second episode of 'Fighting Climate Crisis', we meet two teens climate activists who are doing their bit to save the planet.

 In this special podcast series, BusinessLine in association with UNICEF, we discuss a myriad of ways to tackle climate change. In today’s podcast, we are going to be passing the mic to some young people who are making it happen and doing their bit in the fight against climate change.

He is full of innovative ideas for the growth and protection of flora and fauna. Bodhisatva Khanderao, 13, from Yavatmal, Maharashtra, also a young environmental activist, inspires people to love nature and stop cutting down trees. He started working for social plantation awareness programmes at the age of 6. Listen to find out more about their journeys.
