InterAction Nepal - Spring 2020: Applications Open

InterAction Nepal | Design, Development, Global Health | Spring | 2020

InterAction Nepal is an immersive, interdisciplinary study abroad program offered with the support of the UW Department of Landscape Architecture, the JSIS South Asia Center Nepal Studies Initiative and the Department of Global Health. The program will challenge you to delve into contemporary issues surrounding urban development in the Kathmandu Valley and respond to them at a local scale through community-based participatory design, project implementation and assessment. You will work with Nepali students and residents of an underserved community to design and build a small-scale project and evaluate its impacts on human and environmental health. You will also have the opportunity to pursue your own design or research interests through independent study. Program activities include lectures and discussions, language instruction, field trips within and outside the Kathmandu Valley, community workshops and hands-on design/fabrication/construction.
