Aadya Joshi is a Grade 11 student at the American School of Bombay. Aadya is passionate about restoring native biodiversity and natural ecosystems in urban environments.
In 2018, she founded The Right Green, an organization whose mission is to spread awareness about the ecological importance of native plants in restoring urban ecosystems. She has developed a database of plant-insect relationships for over 2,000 plants (and growing) in the Indian subcontinent and ranked them according to their ability to support biodiversity. This will now enable gardeners and landscapers to choose such plants that are not only beautiful, but will also support the most biodiversity for their eco-regions. She regularly conducts workshops for school children, adults and municipal authorities, highlighting the vital ecological links between native plants, insects, and birds that are essential for maintaining healthy ecosystems.
In addition to her work with The Right Green, Aadya is also a budding researcher, a classically trained musician and enjoys the outdoors.
