It is estimated that by 2050, 6.5 billion human beings will be living in an urban habitat. There is a significant need to transform the way we build and manage our urban spaces and also to manage our communities sustainably.

MAHE participates in building Sustainable cities and communities with a true spirit. We work towards greener infrastructure development, conservation of the water bodies like lake, rainwater harvesting, and water recycling. Most of the electricity consumed in our campus is produced through solar energy. And we devote our resources to build green campus.

MAHE has a true inclusive spirit towards its community members. It provides public access to our building. We provide public access to our libraries including books and publications. MAHE’s staff avail affordable housing. MAHE’s facilities like Manipal Museum of Anatomy & Pathology and Planetarium are available for free public access. MAHE’s research work has produced more than 60 research papers in the prime research journals across the globe and contributed significantly towards UN’s SDG of Sustainable Cities and communities.
