Shakti Regeneration Institute  is a 501(c)3 global nonprofit dedicated to ecosystems preservation and regeneration worldwide, and empowering women, Indigenous and marginalized peoples. Founded by Ajay and Indrani Pal-Chaudhuri in West Bengal, India in 1995 as Shakti Empowerment Education, we focus on three of the UN SDGs and humanity’s greatest challenges: climate change, equality, and education.  We utilize the powers of partnerships, nature, science, technology, storytelling, art, film, and social movement marketing, to maximize positive change.

Our vision is awakening public consciousness, shifting cultural attitudes, and transforming behavior through impactful art, education, advocacy, and innovation. We build transformative influence and mobilize social movements to create a more just, equitable, and regenerative world.
