In March 2015, Pimpim de Azevedo attended a heritage workshop in Nepal organized by LUMANTI and the Community Architects Network (CAN).
Objectives of the Heritage Workshop:
1. To bring communities in different peri-urban communities in Kathmandu and think collectively their status as old heritage towns.
2. To bring together all the stakeholders to think about their future as a community, a settlement.
3. To use the workshop to develop plans for upgrading in one of the peri-urban communities, Machhegoan and use this as a demonstration process for other settlements.
4. To make space for architects, planners etc to support the community process in the ground.
5. To use the workshop as a means to link upgrading plan of communities with the central government‘s national plan.
