Citizen Matters is a digital news platform with insightful reporting on critical urban issues, ideas and solutions for cities across India, with select set of local channels for civic journalism and citizen engagement.

Cities face big problems, which impacts their economy, sustainability and social justice. And many of these issues are often local. Interventions tackling these provide rich learning for other cities. Citizen Matters explores,

  • Urban services – what makes a city liveable?
  • City resilience – what is its future?
  • Economy and vibrancy – what makes all its people thrive?

Local chapters connect to a city’s residents, using citizen journalism, radio, and social media channels, exploring issues impacting us collectively and as individual citizens. The focus areas include transport, water, waste, local governance and children (including their health & schooling).

Current chapters include Bengaluru , Chennai and Mumbai
