For the last month, dozens of young volunteers from several colleges and civil society organizations along with local residents have been meeting every Saturday to walk the streets of Ward 176 (Adyar). We have been gathering data about the ward’s most pressing civic problems: uncollected garbage, unkempt public toilets, and broken sidewalks.
This Sunday we will be holding a public meeting with residents from the ward, and with candidates for councillor to discuss our data and findings, and to hear from our volunteers about their experiences. This meeting will also serve as a platform to discuss your own assessments of local problems and potential solutions in your area.
Please join us to learn about the problems facing the ward from the residents themselves, and to help make our elected government more accountable.
