Smily Academy India - Sustainable Mindset and Inner Level for Youth - is a scalable Indian impact accelerator matching international youth and cutting edge technologies with Indigenous and local communities’ challenges. Indeed, Indigenous People are the 5% of the world population protecting 85% of world biodiversity. The scalability consists in training 40 students for the first experience and 1,640 students for the second one, meaning creating 12 SPV the first time and almost 500 the second time. The accelerator is a special program of the Indigenous People’s Climate Justice Forum. The main purpose of the Academy is to co-design innovative and inclusive regenerative development models and scale up challenge based and tailor made project works, creating jobs for young talents and supporting Indigenous.
