In 2015 Nepal earthquake killed more than 8,000 people and left
more than 2,000,000 Nepalese homeless.
After the earthquake, Relief 2.0 ran several empowerment
workshops in Nepal using art for disaster recovery. The plan was
to sell their art to help the recovery process, and to make the
initiative sustainable. The plan used a human-centric model
focusing on providing the survivors options to rebuild.
Robin Low, co-founder of Relief 2.0 and Civil Innovation Lab will
talk about his experience on disaster relief as well as introduce
the principle of ‘Never Help; Engage, Enable, Empower and
Connect’. Good intentions sometimes yield bad consequences;
especially with regards to disaster relief where many
communities will be impacted.
