Such Conversations Matter (SCM)

Saurabh Nanda

SCM is a collection of conversations that should be part of our daily discussions but aren't because of various reasons. SCM is a place where I talk to people who are niche experts and/or have developed expertise through their life experience on the themes of Sustainability, Tech for Good, Global Citizenship, Mental Health, Education and other areas. Hello everyone, I am Saurabh Nanda and I ask interesting questions. I was a Computer Engineer. I am now an Educator, a Career Consultant, and a sustainability proponent. #suchconversationsmatter #saurabhnanda Love SN read less
