Rawat started Green Mentors with Gopal Goswami, Ambrish Parajiya, and Bhavesh Shah. It is a global organization for sustainable education that is based in the Indian state of Gujarat. They think that the change to a greener way of life starts with responsible education and includes important "transversal" skills like critical thinking, creativity, empathy, working together to solve problems, and "system thinking."
