Guest speakers will include:
- Jharna Joshi, Architect and Visiting Associate Professor at Kathmandu University

- Mohan Rao, Principal Designer at Integrated Design (INDÉ), specialized in environmental design and landscape architecture
Featured sites will include the Historic Water Systems of India and the Hitis (water fountains) of the Kathmandu Valley, both of which are the focus of conservation projects that originated with WMF’s World Monuments Watch, a program that brings together individuals, communities, and leaders from across the public and private sectors to safeguard irreplaceable cultural heritage.
