Fixing our cities
Making urban India work better is one of the key challenges before us. But how do we do this? I put a bunch of thoughts together in a position paper, outlining the things we need to change in governance, law, policy, planning, implementation, design, institutional setup, competence, innovation, and other areas of focus.
Technology for <br>society
Technology must serve a social purpose as well, in addition to its economic value. This is only possible if we bring it within the reach of many more people, by lowering costs and ensuring that tech that is once built is instance-able for many purposes in many places. At Mapunity, we build tech for public administration and participatory citizenship.
For too long, we have focused on sustainability, and not enough on accelerating the adoption of sustainable choices. These are very different things. Unless we rapidly create the alternatives to our current choices, and enable more and more people to choose them, we'll lose the battle for sustainability. Lithium is one such effort.
