As Kathmandu overflows with trash, the city is seeking not just to transform attitudes to waste – but the waste itself
From the air, Kathmandu seems to have a thousand winking eyes as the sun hits the solar panels installed on many homes across the city.
But on the ground, the sun illuminates something very different: piles of plastic and household rubbish, strewn amongst the pagodas and along the labyrinthine streets.
When we said we are building a playground and the materials come or we find them, everyone began laughing
We as the human race have hit the wall to some extent, and places like Kathmandu are the front bumper against that wall
So many youngsters are involved that often the mindset gets changed at home: kids tell their parents to use less plastic.
