EMPOWERED CITIZENS MAKE better CITIES
Every citizen can become a changemaker when knowledge, understanding and tools are placed in her hands. Oorvani Foundation makes this possible.
CITIES . CITIZENS . CIVIC ACTION
Cities are where societies define themselves. They are sites of churn and change, energy and evolution. And at the heart of this dynamism are people. A city’s citizens.
At Oorvani Foundation we enable citizens to take civic action, by sourcing and sharing knowledge, and creating an empowered community.
MAKing CITIES BETTER
Collaborative city news platform on systemic issues and citizen-led solutions.
Public data and documents, made open to citizens, to enable data-driven and democratic cities.
Journalism and features on development issues across India.
*As of 2020
We have built a citizen-centred and citizen-driven platform, with collaboration between citizens, domain experts and journalists plus our editorial stewardship. A democratisation of information and understanding that is unprecedented in India.
Our work has enabled citizens to define what issues are important to them, exchange knowledge and strategies on civic organising, and come together to both demand and create change.
