INDIA IS CALLING

Thousands of us across the country are raising our voices for a better future for our human and environmental ecosystems - in classrooms, living rooms, cafes, courtrooms, and boardrooms. If you’re one of them, we’re listening. We strive to unite voices of tomorrow through collaborative scientific research.

Because the future of India is us - together.

 

The echo network is a unique movement. Nowhere in the world has there been a precedence for such a network. We believe that positive change will come only when individuals across society work together using science and technology to develop a shared purpose for our collective future.

 

Our mission

To build a close-knit and collaborative community where bright minds can tackle real-world problems in human and environmental ecosystems

Our promise

Every organism on our planet is calling to us. We promise to listen to our society and our natural world and facilitate scientific research for a better tomorrow

Our essence

We are the science that listens with an open heart

ABOUT US

 

The echo network is a social innovation partnership initiated in 2019 by the Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India along with multiple stakeholders. We are a living tool to embed science into the society that helps each individual understand the importance of science in our daily lives and each organization realize its goals toward solving India's systemic problems. 

WHY WE ARE NEEDED

WHAT WE DO

Issues like sustainability of our planet cannot be solved by individuals. Solving these problems requires people from different walks of life to come together with a common shared purpose. Shannon Olsson, Global Director at the echo network talks about how we are striving to create this purpose and bring together people from various walks of society to converse, collaborate, and innovate together.

Global Director

All life on Earth interacts through the language of chemistry. Prof. Shannon B Olsson is a chemical ecologist who listens to nature’s chemical conversations across India’s diverse ecosystems. A Fulbright Scholar, Ramanujan and INK Fellow, Shannon’s research has been featured by CNN, Inverse, Cosmos, TEDx, Syntalk, Sci-Illustrate, Dublin Science Gallery, V&A London, Chemical and Engineering News, and the DST Science Express train. 

Her love for nature’s communication is what brought her to conceptualise the echo network with the Principal Scientific Adviser in 2018. Echo represents the two things Shannon enjoys most - Nature and Communication. Shannon loves spending time with her two loves - her husband Petter, and her daughter Grace. They teach her the meaning of empathy and trust every day.
