Tashi P.

Master's DegreeTrier University of Applied Sciences



While I started my career in the private sector, however, during a volunteering stint in the Himalayas I realized my sincere passion in working for the environment. Opportunity knocked on the door quicker than expected. Together with British activist Jodie Underhill, I co-founded a grass-root level organization ‘Waste Warriors’ and was instrumental in the inception of decentralized waste management systems in three different locations of North India. Working on the grass root level led to a curiosity in global environmental issues and a top down approach in the field of sanitation and its sustainable utilization. In this pursuit, I recently accomplished the Master of International Material Flow Management from Trier University of Applied Sciences, Germany with the thesis topic ‘Regional Material Flow Management & Resource Utilization in Peri-Urban Areas’. The thesis aimed to understand how improved sanitation systems in the study area could assist in the development of agriculture via clean energy provision. Material flow management (MFM) is a method of efficiently managing materials. This triple jump of environmental, social and economic orientation makes MFM a tool of high importance in the field of Sustainable Development (SD) and Circular Economy (CE). Along with the theoretical knowledge gained during the Master, as a scientific researcher, I utilized the opportunity to assist several International German Research Institutes & Organizations, thereby acquiring scientific skills largely in the relevant sectors.
