Nayantara Jain is a SCUBA diver, Marine Biologist and a Marine Conservationist who throws some light on the impact of plastics on marine life, how we measure economy and how designers can design better products by focus on earth experience instead of just user experience.
Nayantara Jain is the Executive Director of ReefWatch Marine Conservation. She lived on the islands of Lakshadweep and Andamans as a SCUBA Diving Instructor for a few years, inspired by the beauty of the ocean, but increasingly disturbed by its degradation by factors global and local. Eventually she left the islands to learn more about marine biodiversity and conservation at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego. She returned informed, optimistic and passionate about protecting India’s marine spaces.

I want to let you know that my ebook 13 Skills and Mindsets for Creators and Makers is now available for download. During Season 1 of the show, I interviewed over a 100 creators with background in design, filmmaking, arts, creative entrepreneurship and more. The goal was to understand what it takes to be successful and stand-out as a creator and maker. The outcome of that series of interviews are 13 skills, traits and mindsets that I’ve now documented in this ebook.
If you are a creator or maker, no matter what background you are from – tech, non-tech, visual arts, filmmaking, or just any other background, you will find this valuable. Why?
