By 2030, 60% of the global population is going to be living in cities. Bengaluru is projected to be at the forefront of this growth – with an 8.5% increase in economic output and an exponentially rising population. Bengaluru has struggled to keep apace with its rapid growth which has taken a toll on the city, its resources and human and non-human inhabitants.
Despite funding to repair roads, build flyovers and metros and fix water supplies all accompanied by promises to make Bengaluru another Singapore, to some the city seems to be coming apart at the seams.
In this first episode of Ooru we speak to urban planners, water experts, and those who live in and love this city to find out ‘What Should Bengaluru Look Like?’
