Recognizing the youth as an important constituency, TERI has reached out to nearly 25000 schools and 10000 colleges in India, through various programmes on environmental sustainability. In the sphere of higher education, TERI University has conferred postgraduate degrees on more than 1300 students in various disciplines of sustainable development.
TERI Press, the publishing arm of TERI, brings out journals, books and magazines for readers of all ages and attainments, and TERI's Film Unit produces films and videos that highlight human-interest stories related to sustainable development.
Every year since 2001, TERI has been convening one of the largest international summits - the Delhi Sustainable Development Summit, now elevated to the World Sustainable Development Summit - to provide a common platform to leading thinkers of the world to share and reiterate key messages on sustainable development.
In providing this diverse range of solutions and services, TERI's most valuable resource is its human capital. Its workforce of nearly 1200 people comprises scientists, sociologists, economists, and engineers who work together to design holistic solutions.
Over the years, TERI has also developed state-of-the art infrastructure, which includes facilities for mass production of bacterial and mychorrizal cultures and tissue-cultured plants, a supercomputing facility for climate modelling, and solar lighting and water testing laboratories. TERI maintains a specialized library and information centre on energy, environment, and climate change.
TERI is headquartered in New Delhi, with regional centres in Bengaluru, Guwahati, Mumbai, Panaji (Goa), and Nainital (Uttarakhand).
Beyond India, TERI has also actively promoted South-South Cooperation. It has implemented various projects in countries of Latin America, South Asia, South East Asia, and small island states.
A major part of TERI's income is generated from funds and research grants from multilateral and bilateral organizations, government agencies, grant-making bodies, and international academic institutions.
Now into the fifth decade of its journey, TERI's commitment to link its research to practice and policy is stronger than ever. Looking ahead, it aims to build new alliances and partnerships to spread its solutions across the globe to create a better world.
