Nikita Naik

The Shola Trust

As a Communications Manager, Research Associate and a Co-Founder of Mikheer, I am passionate about exploring and promoting sustainable and inclusive ways of living and working with nature and communities.

I have a Bachelor of Architecture degree, where I learnt to apply art and design principles to create innovative and environmentally friendly designs. I have worked in urban slums of Pune, grasslands of Maharashtra, Terai Region of Uttarakhand and am currently living near the Rainforests of Western Ghats. I am trying to understand the ways in which local communities have been living in the most sensitive ecologies without disrupting their cycle.
