Cities are India’s hard hitting reality that we are yet not able to cope with or plan for. Urbanism is the new way of life, and is associated with its various strands of practices and effects. At present, voice that speaks, discusses and innovates solutions for dealing with various urban phenomena is limited.
‘Terra Urban’ is envisioned as a Think-Do Tank- an urban forum by Participatory Research in Asia (PRIA) tracing urban issues, strengthening the voice of civil society towards those and in turn aim to create not just a platform to bring forth various actors, stakeholders and visions but also attempt to create action-research.
This urban forum thereby is being coined with the following vision:
- To be an exchange platform
- To be a knowledge portal
- To facilitate knowledge creation and action research
- To facilitate creation of network of CSOs/NGOs/Academician/ Professionals/Community and various other stakeholders
