In one of her articles, Neelima mentioned that climate change has a special relevance for Odisha because of its location and geophysical conditions. Apart from the devastating super cyclone in 1999, repeatedly, Odisha has been facing intense tropical cyclones — the most recent being Daye and Titli.

Neelima was able to complete her Arctic expedition and was later covered by many renowned media houses to motivate the Indian youth. She is now an influencer who works for various environmental causes.
“By witnessing the pristine wilderness on Earth, I will be trained in sustainable ways of living and interacting with the ecosystem by the experts, thus helping me on my climate leadership journey.” – Neelima Mishra
