CitYzen is the CSR arm of Fluentgrid Limited, which strives to foster sustainable and resilient communities for a better society through people participation. Under the CitYzen banner, we recently launched Lets Green Vizag, a CSR program aimed at bringing back the green cover of Vizag -lost due to Hudhud cyclone- through the active involvement of citizen volunteers. Honorable CM Sri Nara Chandrababu Naidu recently launched our tree mapping application (http://onevizag.org/map/) that has been used to capture the species details, location, and photographic evidence of nearly 50,000 plants so far. It is the first time in India that so many trees have been geotagged in a city along with photographic evidence. We are in the process of taking the next steps necessary to monitor their wellbeing in a sustainable manner, in coordination with GVMC.
