Kaun hai Master? Kya hai Plan?
An interactive tool to spread awareness on Delhi's Master Planning process and share people's perspectives
'Kaun Hai MASTER? Kya Hai PLAN?' is a participatory toolkit designed by our team and supported by SEWA - for workshops by the Main Bhi Dilli campaign to help spread awareness within communities typically left out of planning processes on Delhi's upcoming Master Plan 2041 and how they could engage with it. Activities cover the different chapters of the Master Plan from Housing, Physical infrastructure & Transport to Public Space, Heritage, Environment & Livelihoods using maps, mascots, ballot charts and bindis.
Cities across the world are using more and more participatory processes to raise awareness on their city development plans and to get feedback from their residents. As Delhi prepares its 4th Masterplan for the next 20 years, DDA and NIUA have been holding online consultations in a bid to reach out to the residents. How can we increase the reach of this civic participation? How can we ensure that more vulnerable communities that are typically left out of masterplanning process can be heard this time? What role can we play in this?
These are the questions we've been trying to raise. And create some solutions too!
The toolkit has been finalised based on user feedback from pilots supported by SEWA, Basti Suraksha Manch and IGSSS. The trainings of the workshop hosts have been completed recently and the workshops are currently ongoing. If you'd like to contribute to the process, please write to us.
