Sensing Local

A living lab that accelerates improvement of the environment and public health in Indian Cities

About

Sensing local proposes a 'Living Lab', which is to be a site for city observation, learning, and innovation with a specific focus on improving the state of the environment and public health. As a model, it is to serve as an in-between-step that formalizes learning and experimentation in the urban context to achieve impact at a faster pace for the largest section of society. The prime thrust of the Living Lab is to behave as a catalyst for the ecosystem of a city's decision makers, and 'breakthrough' the trap of repetitive, fragmented, myopic actions.
