Krish Patel is a final year high school student at KGV studying the IB programme, with a deep passion for sustainability. Aspiring to pursue product design, he is eager to incorporate sustainable philosophies, such as a cradle-to-cradle design approach, into his future design projects. He is eager to contribute to the emerging era of sustainable design, which prioritises sustainability rather than treating it as an afterthought. Krish recognises the vast interconnectedness of sustainability, encompassing multiple spheres of modern life. With this understanding, he believes that a collective push is necessary to combat the systemic issue of climate change. That in mind, he firmly believes that the responsibility to take action falls not only on governments and product designers but on every individual. He is optimistic about the future but acknowledges the long road ahead.
