Bangalore is the capital of India’s southern Karnataka state and a tech hub for multinational companies from around the world. Home to 8,5 million people it faces many urban challenges connected to sustainability.
Waste management and public transportation are two such areas where new sustainable solutions are needed. In two full-day workshops The Bridge facilitated some 20 local and 5 Nordic stakeholders in developing 7 different collaboration proposals to address these challenges. At the Bridge Summit in 2020 the solutions around waste management were promoted even further with the help of Bangalore Municipality and also a case example at TEDxTheBridge, part of the TED Countdown initiative.
