Hear from our community

WeWork India understands that impact is not always simple and straightforward and cannot be rolled out on spreadsheets, but depends on the co-operation of the target community. As an implementation agency for their CSR initiatives, we are grateful to have such a dedicated partner in WeWork.

There is more community involvement at the lake as a result of all the work done there. Many locals frequent this area for walks; children adore the butterfly park, and shepherds favour the lake for herding

It has been a pleasure working with WeWork on our project on Human-Wildlife Interactions in the Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Mumbai. Their desire to contribute to the larger cause of biodiversity conservation and sustainability has been particularly noteworthy, and the enthusiasm of the team both in engaging with the project team and in visiting the site has made it great to collaborate.

We are grateful for the support provided to us by WeWork. It has helped us immensely towards the smooth functioning of the leopard project. The long-term data we collect in this landscape will further strengthen our understanding of the coexistence model between humans and wild animals.
