Ambassador Ziegler will be starting his day with a visit of the Mumbai Metro One office for an overview of the train management system as well as a hands-on experience of driving a train in the simulator room.

Ambassador Ziegler will meet Saurabh Gupta, founder of Earth5R, a global social enterprise working on guiding citizens towards sustainable livelihood models. Gupta was selected for the India-France Young Leaders Club, which is aimed at creating partnerships between young movers and shakers of the two countries for establishing an influential advisory network to promote bilateral action.

Thereafter, Ambassador Ziegler will jointly lay the foundation stone of an ultra-modern video game development studio, which is being built under an industry-academic partnership between France’s Ubisoft, known for its interactive video games and IIT Bombay.
