Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

Chintan was established in December 1999 by Bharati Chaturvedi, who recognized a need to address issues of sustainable consumption and environmental and social justice. Chintan was joined by others who wish to create and promote strategies that secure environmental and social justice in a rapidly transforming India.

Chintanís mission is to facilitate the participation of citizens in the empowerment of their communities and to advocate for local and national policies that ensure social equity and environmental safeguarding.





Chintan over the years has done tremendous work on ensuring environmental and social justice to rag-pickers. For more information on their current activities and achievements please visit www.chintan-india.org





Chintan''s main approaches involve capacity building for dignified livelihood generation for the informal sector engaged in environmental service provision, inclusion of the urban poor in policy making and research. Further Chintan also engages rag-pickers in advocacy on issues of environmental justice and environmental governance, and education and awareness-raising for children and adults, ranging from school children and their parents to policy makers.
