IIM Kozhikode students have launched a mobile app which will help in making Kerala more clean, green and safe state to live in. The app has been named as 'MakeourKerala'.
The main objective of the app is to enable individuals to expose the issues around their locality and to mobilize the additional support from the locality by creating actionable directives.
About the app

Prof Sidhartha S Padhi, Assistant Professor, IIM-K said, "Through this app, we hope to achieve a strong platform where people come together for common goals that they have pledged to support. Our vision is to empower the people with the right data and tools to ensure accountability.''
The admin model of the app has been derived from the Wikipedia-based admin model which ensures 'crowd-sourced accountability model'. The admins will be selected by the users who in turn will be responsible for approving the posts.
