Welcome to Kathmandu Living Labs!

We are a group of young people working to harness human potential and creativity by leveraging open data and civic technology. We are driven by the belief that, collectively, we can solve even the most difficult problems our country is facing.


Kathmandu Living Labs harnesses local knowledge, develops open data and promotes civic technologies. At Kathmandu Living Labs, we attempt to connect technologies to difficult problems people face in their everyday lives. Through the years of experience, we have learned that technology is only a part of the puzzle in creating technology-based solutions. Successful implementation of technology-solution requires choreography of bringing together a number of elements forming an ecosystem. Our emphasis at Kathmandu Living Labs is on cutting-edge web 2.0 and participatory technologies that empower and engage citizens in working with government and development agencies to address problems collectively.
