He has helped the Central and the State Governments in creation of environment friendly as well as sustainable jobs by introducing Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral programmes in  the areas of environment, pollution control, ecological education, environmental communication, environmental laws, diaster mitigation, sustainable development and human rights.

Professor Trivedi has helped more than 35 universities in India and other countries enabling them to sign Memorandum of Understanding for designing programmes in new and emerging fields relating to employment generation and vocationalisation of existing careers.

Prof. Trivedi is keen to help the Federal and other Governments under the leadership for translating his programme of employment generation in to action. Prof. Trivedi wishes to create employment opportunities for each and every person in the country by tackling the two important problems - unemployment and pollution. The idea is to have more and more job givers rather than job seekers.

Prof. Trivedi can implement these programmes by proposing some changes in the existing educational policies by putting necessary inputs of mother earth protection strategies, attitudinal and behavioural change, entrepreneurial leadership and green culture for entering the 21st century with a cleaner and greener mind.

Let us discuss these matters in a greater detail:
