The Government of India had initiated a massive mission of creating Smart Cities across the country. Agra was nominated as one of these cities. A number of government organisations are working to make this mission a success. As always, SPHEEHA has taken the lead to bring all stakeholders under one roof with experts from across the country helping outline the broad vision and possible solution to make Agra a Smart City. There is lot of work to be done. SPHEEHA help its seminar titled ‘Smart Cities, Citizen Science and Eco-Habitat for Sustainable Development’ on December 6, 2015, at the International Hostel Auditorium, DEI (near Prelude Public School) to guide through the work involved in creating Smart Cities bringing subject matter experts from across the country, government officers, Citizens of Agra and SPHEEHA members under a single roof.
