Shagun Singh has been credited and acknowledged for her seminal work in the field of sustainable living and ecological housing solutions.
In her hands, mud transforms into curvaceous super-homes that not only look stunning but also create an ambient temperature inside and maintain optimum humidity levels. The homes are solar passive and take care of the energy, water, and waste management needs of the residents.
Both at the Geeli Mitti research center and at govt and private universities, she has been leading education towards combating environmental pollution and reducing carbon emissions generated by the construction and real estate industry.
Shagun has been driving innovation by making ecological mud architecture-based products available to all. Her Foundation’s community initiatives additionally support rural communities preserve their culture and heritage with eco-tourism and natural farming Neither an MBA in Finance and Marketing nor a very successful corporate career was enough for Shagun Singh. So she changed her proverbial pen into a shovel and launched Geeli Mitti in 2015 specializing in generating sustainable livelihood opportunities for marginalized and rural communities.
Over the last few years, Shagun has been credited and awarded as one of the most influential leaders for sustainable living and ecological housing solutions. Both at the Geeli Mitti research centers and at govt and private universities, she has been driving education towards natural building techniques, integrated farming, water, and waste management.
