What is Ekyam ?
Ekyam is a sustainable value based concept for Community Happiness. Ekyam is a sanskrit word meaning “one-ness”. We believe each individual has the potential to blossom to their true potential when one aligns to a collective good. Sharing & taking responsibility are at the core of Ekyam, which begins from feeling abundance within and leads to co-creating abundance outside.
Ekyam enables local action through a series of theme based events, which lead to solving problems, sharing resources and creating abundance. The themes are based on selected SDGs around Health, Education, Sustainability and Responsibility. Within villages, in towns and also in mega cities, groups would engage in these activities through online platforms, neighbourhood meetings, satsangs and symposiums.
As a global platform, Ekyam connects local action to global challenges by enabling co-learning, collaboration and cooperation, thus creating oneness. Ekyam reflects our collective identity, by making each individual a unique stakeholder in its vision of a happier world.
Core Values of Ekyam
