About Mission Blue Sky Cities

A participative approach under the guidance of Mr Arun Maira led to collation of ideas and inputs from CII staff. Exercise was culminated with the identification of two organizational goals i.e. ‘Better life & Better work for every Indian’; one aspirational outcome under each goal was identified i.e. Mission Blue Sky Cities (BSC) and Wellness at Workplace, respectively for focused and concerted work and syncing with India@75 vision objectives for 2022 & beyond;

Staff Steering Group (SSG) comprising senior staff members of CII was constituted to guide the work. Kick starting the process a cross vertical core team for Mission BSC was put in place with representation from CESD, CII Foundation, GBC, Energy and Infra verticals of CII.
