University of Birmingham Chancellor chats with young award-winning Indian inventor

As the Birmingham 2022 Queen’s Baton Relay reaches India, our Chancellor Lord Bilimoria chats to 15-year-old innovator and environmentalist Vinisha Umashankar.
The University is an Official Partner of the Birmingham 2022 Queen’s Baton Relay and we selected Vinisha as our Batonbearer in India.
You might recognise her from COP26? She was also shortlisted for the Earthshot prize for her solar ironing cart invention, which uses solar panels to eliminate the need for polluting coal for ironing.
Vinisha and Lord Bilimoria chat about her inspiration in becoming an innovator at the age of 12 and her experiences being our Batonbearer, as well as her aspirations for the future and more.
