Abhayjeet Sachal

Abhay is an inspirational figure who has used his gift of public speaking and superior application of social media to speak to the world as a young change-maker.  He is a ‘once-in-a- generation’ student whose transformative leadership approach to change has inspired many at an incredibly young age. Abhay created a foundation called ‘Break the Divide’ which creates global awareness about climate change and its impact on Canada’s Indigenous population in an attempt to incite collaboration, understanding and action. He frequently makes presentations throughout the Lower Mainland and has also travelled throughout North America to speak at a variety of conferences.  In March 2018, Abhay was a presenter at the 2018 Southeastern Environmental Education Alliance (SEEA) Conference hosted by the League of Environmental Educators in Florida (LEEF) and also spoke at the World Religions Parliament in Toronto and the Eco-Sikh Gala in Washington DC.  He was also invited to be a feature speaker at the 2018 United Nations Climate Change Conference hosted by the North American Association of Environmental Educators in Spokane Washington. 

Due to his incredible efforts towards sustainability, Abhay has been named to Canda's Top 25 Under 25 and has been recognized by media across the nation. He also became Canada’s Vimy Ridge award recipient and was invited to travel to the 100th celebration of the Vimy Ridge memorial and meet the Prime Minister of Canada along with members of the Royal family.
