Elements try to randomly orient and they end up cancelling each other. Elements try to align with each other and they rise together in resonance. Same is the case of our society and the natural forces. Given the numerous technological and cultural changes our society is going through, sustainability is the bell that keeps ringing across all governments and organisations. But even after this buzz, how much do we know about sustainability and our environment? It’s time to test your curious selves as we bring to you the Wipro Earthian Sustainability Quiz.
