At the core of our philosophy of collaborative urbanism lies the idea that cities are vibrant, equitable, and liveable when they are democratized—shaped for the people, by the people. We believe that a shared dialogue is a foremost step towards addressing common challenges faced by people across societies and cultures. Hence, people from all walks of life must partake a significant stake in the said dialogue and eventually arrive at sustainable solutions to the current urban challenges, through a collective spirit.
We foresee the Urban Dialogue Initiative as a platform to tell unique stories of our cities. The initiative includes a blog for people and organizations to collaboratively write with us on pressing urban issues.
We make constant efforts to reaching out to people, in a bid to sensitize them towards our objectives and forge interdisciplinary alliances to have conversations and collective action around various urban issues and aspirations.
We are focussed on working on the multi-faceted fronts to extend our outreach, and the agenda includes research and urban design projects and community-based development initiatives.
Multilogue Collective is an organisation that aims to involve people in conceiving new paradigms of urbanism to achieve sustainable cities and communities. We believe in initiating many-to-many conversations around the way our cities are planned and function through generating community awareness, engagement, and soliciting civic participation.
On June 3rd, 2020, we organised a discussion session to have the expert insights as well as diverse end-user experiences to raise awareness around cycling, its benefits, barriers to widespread acceptability and infrastructure implementation, and post-COVID 19, its ability to emerge as a lucrative means to travel for people from all walks of life to commute safely.
This forum was in collaboration with Shweta Sundar, an architect/urbanist from Mumbai and an avid cyclist with experiences from Mumbai and Ahmedabad as well.

RE-DEFINING PUJO 2020
Multilogue Collective X WeAreLabeless
This year for Durga Puja, two forces have joined hands together for this fundraising campaign.
Crafted in collaboration with WeAreLabeless, these products have been made by re-using the elements of the 'pandal'. The cloth was donated by Chittaranjan Park Durga Puja Samiti (B-Block) and Decorator, Mr. Charanjit Singh, owner of Ludhiana Tent House, New Delhi.
The fabric that would have accounted for waste at the end of the year was kept aside and was used to make these products by our team at WeAreLabeless.
The sale of the products will serve as a fundraiser towards the local production makers and it will also be donated to an NGO dealing with a social cause.
