Even as India urbanises, there is relatively limited discussion on what this future urban will be. Will we follow well-trodden paths or will our dispersed settlement pattern, the advent of Industry 4.0 and new tools of governance lead us to a different destination?
For our workshop this month, a panel of thought leaders from industry, civil society, academia and government will bring their distinctive perspectives to bear on this question and explore the implications for the urban research agenda.
