Presenting Speaker #9
for the Leo Youth Conclave 2018:
Mr. Afroz Shah
A young Indian lawyer from Mumbai, synonymous with the world’s largest beach clean-up project. He was also honored with the title of Champion Of The Earth by United Nations Environment Programme
In October 2015, Shah and his neighbor Harbansh Mathur, an 84-year-old who has since passed away, were frustrated with the piles of decomposing waste that had washed up and completely overwhelmed the city’s Versova beach. Determined to do something about it, the pair started cleaning up the beach themselves, one piece of rubbish at a time.
Every weekend since, Shah has inspired volunteers to join him – from slum-dwellers to Bollywood stars, from schoolchildren to politicians. They have been turning up at Versova for what Shah calls "a date with the ocean". He vows to continue his beach clean-up crusade until people and their governments around the world change their approach to producing, using and discarding plastic and other products that wash up onto beaches all over the world.
He is going to be there at the Leo Youth Conclave, Are YOU?
