Urbanization is at cross roads. And there is a conflict. Urbanization is a strong mechanism to alleviate poverty and provide better life. Despite being a natural progression of human development, it could however, inflict severe self limiting damages.
IIHS (Indian institute of human settlement) is engaging youth in finding sustainable solution to resolve the conflict of urbanization. It begins with a ‘student challenge program’, to bring together collaboration and innovation from tomorrow’s owners of the society.
Christened, ‘san-kranti’ @ transformurbanindia.com, is an invitation to join a unique community of change-makers. It invites ideas from students to bring issues to the fore, document, discuss and debate them with a diverse community of peers and experts. And it could well be ones way to the next (business)idea.
Have a hard look at the most pressing problems in the urbanization of India and pitch your idea for an inclusive and sustainable society.
And so here it starts … the season for Big Business Ideas in India.
