Real changemakers are those that don’t wait for somebody else to bring about change, instead they themselves become that somebody. Look around you and you will find several such stories. Bringing you one such inspiring story is Oxemberg through the life of environmentalist Arun Krishnamurthy.

Arun is a Chennai-based environmental activist who runs his own NGO. His passion for the environment led him to quit his lucrative job and dedicate himself to a cause he so strongly believes in. Today, Arun along with his NGO, has cleaned several lakes across the country.

As a brand, Oxemberg believes in telling powerful and inspiring stories that motivate people to make a difference. It also believes that true change can only be brought about when you take the initiative and lead from the front, just the way Arun did. When he experienced water scarcity in his own backyard, he didn’t wait for somebody else to take action, instead he thought ‘Why not become that somebody?’. It this spirit and commitment that Oxemberg pays tribute to in this video.

Today Arun’s NGO makes documentary films, gives public speeches, does lake walks and spearheads a host of other initiatives to sensitise people towards the environment.

To make something happen, you have to make a beginning. There’s no point simply waiting for others. Oxemberg celebrates this winning attitude and urges you to #MakeYourMove.
