Workshop on Interdisciplinary Learning for Road Danger Reduction 16th-19th May 2021
June 16, 2021

Following the successful piloting of our interdisciplinary workshop on Road Danger Reduction in May 2020, the NIRC organized the second Interdisciplinary Workshop on Road Danger Reduction from 16th May-19th May 2021. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions in place in Nepal, the 4-day workshop was conducted remotely via Zoom. A total of 24 participants took part in the workshop. The participants included undergraduate students from Urban Planning (Institute of Engineering, Pulchowk Campus), Community Medicine (Kathmandu Medical College), Transportation Engineering (Institute of Engineering, Pulchowk Campus), and Public Health (Patan Academy of Health Sciences) departments. The workshop comprised group discussions and polling activities on diverse road safety themes/aspects to reinforce the need for shared responsibility to tackle road safety problems. Twelve national and international guest experts were invited to share their knowledge and experiences, providing workshop participants with
the opportunity to interact, ask questions, and discuss with guest experts during the workshop sessions. The positive feedback received from both participants and guest experts highlighted the need to prioritize more inter-disciplinary activities/dialogue between future safety professionals.
