Creating a Livable Planet

Horizontal ground of ideas and innovation for building a sustainable world

“Let us sacrifice our today so that our children can have a better tomorrow.”
Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

In the entire solar system, our planet Earth has those distinguished attributes which can sustain life for not just human beings but an entire kingdom of flora and fauna, both above and below the surface of water.  At the same time, the planet faced the brunt of irresponsible humankind that is often inconsiderate of the repercussions that its actions will have.

Committed to democratizing access to resources and opportunities, Kalam Livable Planet Conclave, dedicated to the vision of Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam was established on the first anniversary of passage of the late luminary. Notably, his last lecture at the prestigious Indian Institute of Management, Shillong was also devoted to ‘Creating A Livable Planet’.

It is attended by young delegates who are handpicked from all over the country for their outstanding work in the nation’s service and social cause. The Conclave also features a presentation of Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Livable Planet Award to selected individuals and institutions for their exemplary work for the nation and society.
