The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) has launched the "Mission Innovation Program", a citywide innovation challenge aimed at fostering innovation and collaboration among children, young professionals, NGOs, enterprises, and citizens of Navi Mumbai.

Aim of the project

The project aims to encourage and support innovators in developing solutions that can help in cleanliness and sanitation-related operations in Navi Mumbai. Under the program, innovators from Navi Mumbai will be invited to propose ideas and solutions that promote cleanliness, waste management, and overall sanitation in the city. These ideas can range from technological innovations, behavioural change initiatives, waste reduction strategies, community engagement programs, and more.

The initiative seeks to bring together the three key stakeholders of innovation – Innovators, Incubators, and Implementers – on one platform to drive positive change and development in the city.
