Endless Knots

In 1997, I made a lightning work trip to Nepal (and three other nearby countries in 14 days) for UN Development Programme. I enjoyed my time in Thailand, Laos, and Pakistan, but it was Nepal that settled deep into my soul in barely four days.

Applying Graphic Facilitation in New Contexts

A few weeks ago I answered an advert asking for a volunteer to visualize a training session on building self-esteem and improving mental health for women who are sexually exploited in Nepal. A welcoming group in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Personal reflections on 2013

Michelle Laurie

I’m writing from Nepal where I am far from many friends and family yet close to lots of new friends and colleagues. A blog post about living in Nepal will be coming shortly! As the New Year gets rolling, I took a few minutes to reflect on the last 12 months.

What would a family friendly community meeting look like (besides noisy)?

Michelle Laurie

In fact, I just returned from three weeks working in Nepal with my son who was four months at the time. Recently, I attended a public meeting held at the local community hall to share the latest findings from a city budget engagement process.

Blogging as Reflective Practice on this Sunny Monday Morning

Michelle Laurie

I plan to test the boundaries of a knowledge worker by moving my office (computer + phone + brain) to Kathmandu, Nepal. I started this blog in 2007 as a way to keep in touch with a remote team while working in the field in West Africa.

Off-line

For the next two weeks I’ll be trekking in Nepal – something I’ve wanted to do for a long, long time. So that means pretty much no contact with the outside world. Play nice while I’m away. Just Stuff

Fear, readiness and perseverence

Viv Mcwaters

I first planned a trip to Nepal for trekking exactly 30 years ago (yikes!) Fast-forward to 2011 and a work opportunity took me to Nepal and planets aligned in a way that enabled us to do that long-abandoned trek.

The Persuasion 61

Endless Knots

I could see her landing near an old woman carrying water from the Mekong; she wrapped her with green strands that stretched to another standing by the Charles River in Boston, looped with blue to a woman on Annapurna in Nepal. “ The Persuasion, ” p. MJ, c’mon, I need you to get up.” He was already dressed. “We’ve We’ve got to get moving.” It was the first day of summer and Tonin was jostling my shoulder. Finishing a dream. Let me sleep.”.

How to avoid getting sick in India

Jenny Connected

It was ironic that I managed to not be sick in Nepal, despite camping and having no proper sanitation, but then getting sick (one day only) when arriving in Srinagar. In today’s live ChangeMooc session with Antonio Vantaggiato [link] (which I will come to again in another post), I was sorry to hear that Stephen Downes, George Siemens and Dave Cormier all suffered from ‘Delhi Belly’ as a result of their trip to India. I wish I had shared my strategies for avoiding this earlier.

Technology: supporting decision-making

Joitske Hulsebosch

Till we talked to friends who have lived in Nepal. Many articles (like this one by Wenger have written about the waves in knowledge management, the first focussing on technology, the second on people, the third on strategic capabilities). Nancy Dixon in Does your organisation have an asking problem? also talks about the challenges of software-based knowledge systems, and how to combine it with access to tacit knowledge in the heads of colleagues.
