One India Foundation was started with a single belief. That design and innovation can change the destiny of a society, alter the course of history and drive progress like nothing else can. It is a ‘not for profit’ organization committed to bring about social change through design and innovation.
From creating concepts for urban living to preserving cultural and traditional identities, to streamlining traditional Indian medicines, to making our cities more intuitive to implementing Government programmes that are progressive, One India Foundation exists to influence, curate and mobilise this exciting phase in India’s journey.
Urban development in India will never be the same again. With the launch of the Nagpur City-Lab, India has taken a giant leap in urban planning for the future. It is the result of an agreement, inked in the presence of CM Sri Devendra Fadnavis, between the Nagpur Municipal Corporation and One India Foundation – Centre for Design and Innovation. The Nagpur City-Lab will aim to create and implement intuitive city concepts and establish a rich repository of knowledge on urban planning and infrastructure design. It will be the first time that an urban local body introduces city branding as an integral part of its development.
In a tweet, CM Devendra Fadnavis said, “Glad to witness signing of MoU between NMC & One India Foundation for one of its kind initiative in India to bring in creativity in urban development”. As the first step in this journey, One India Foundation has designed the logo and identity for the city of Nagpur. The identity reflects the culture, the history and the future of the city.
