Description

The Design and Development in Nepal (DDN) exploration seminar is a unique, 28-day program offered jointly by the Nepal Studies Initiative (NSI) and the Informal Urban Communities Initiative (IUCI). The seminar challenges students to delve into the ideas and contemporary debates surrounding development, and respond to them through community-based participatory design. Students in the DDN program will explore historical and contemporary conditions as key drivers of change in the country and engage in a small scale design intervention in an underserved urban neighborhood in the Kathmandu Valley. This innovative program aims to engender humility in the face of complexity and reflective action in response to context and community.
