Oorja means Vigour. Oorja is cosmic Energy. We at OorjaCity are one of the pioneers in engaging communities to brainstorm on multiple aspects of urban sustainable development ranging from the future of energy, food and environment to effective mechanism to engage youth and experience to achieve realistic sustainable development goals of Mother Earth.
Urbanization is the prime challenge of the fast-developing world. It is estimated that by 2050, 60% of the world population would be living in cities. In 2016 world leaders at United Nation had come up with seventeen World Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) to be achieved by 2030. In a layman’s language, they are otherwise known as Global Goals. The main tasks are poverty eradication, a greener planet and peaceful co-existence amongst people.
We have taken up the challenge to work towards bridging the gap between knowledge and accessibility of sustainable solutions within a city and to make the SDGs known to the communities and the volunteer groups alike.
- Be a catalyst to sustainable urban development.
- Empower every individual in the city with the knowledge and provide accessibility to possible solutions of sustainable urban development near them.
- Help the community initiatives, green innovations and solutions designed at grassroot level to reach global stage for effective co-creation of smart and sustainable cities.
OorjaCity is an online platform to effectively connect communities, community initiatives, volunteers, green business service providers, NGOs and other organizations which actively form the ecosystem of sustainable urban development to co-create sustainable cities.
OorjaCity actively encourages local urban communities to experiment with some of the complex problems in sustainable development and collectively find innovative solutions for better community life.
