Aanchal Somani

The Terra.do LFA fellowship was the best decision I ever made. Working in climate had been a long-held ambition, but one that seemed inaccessible. Terra has transformed my perspective and opened windows and doors. I am beyond thankful to everyone who encouraged me to go for it, the entire Terra community, and the instructors and organizers. Take this course! You won't regret it.

Narayan Iyer

Terra.do's Learning for Action is not like any other course you have ever taken. It is a new way of learning for those seeking knowledge and truth. Group learning at its best with a community to support you, and top notch experts in the field to guide you. The 12 weeks is the start to a lifelong journey of making friends, and peers, and work colleagues.
