As Siddarth Das believes, “Each and every one of you is an innovator.” Speaking off the back of coordinating the Earth Hour worldwide movement, Sid shares on how making the first symbolic gesture tips people over into taking concrete action. Be empowered with the knowledge that to spark change, all we need to is step up and be the innovator you can be.

Siddarth “Sidpicky” Das is the Executive Director of Earth Hour Global. Prior to his position as Executive Director, Siddarth was the man behind the comprehensive outreach and engagement that Earth Hour has attained through the use of digital media. Presently, he leads the organization in delivering the global climate campaign across 172 countries and territories. A self-professed tech geek, he is also an avid tennis player and a travel photographer.
With over a decade of experience working in the digital industry, Siddarth delves into every facet of the digital advertising and campaigning perspective, realizing its ability to mobilize change.
