“Sheher” entails our vision for the Indian cities as: -Sustainable, Healthy, Equitable, Happy, Efficient and Resilient. We believe that this acronym presents a vivid image of how contemporary cities should be. There is a need to re-imagine cities, treading off the beaten track of economic development and industrialization and moving towards newer horizons of sustainability.
Through “UrbCon”, the students of M Tech. Urban Development and Management programme shall endeavour to create a structured outreach within the student and professional community working in the urban development sector. By enabling an open dialogue on relevant issues of the urban sector, the symposium shall facilitate learning and collaboration among various institutions, organizations and individuals.
