Mobilizing with Ushahidi

Download to read offline

At the Civicus World Assembly (http://www.civicusassembly.org/), I joined a panel to talk on Integrating Mobile into Civil Society Technology projects

September 11, 2011
Montreal, QC

The integration of mobile phones/applications and Internet technologies into formats that are easy to access and use creates further inclusionary platforms that require little technical skills, relatively little time investment and information flows in multiple directions that encourage discussion. This culminates in the growing availability of locally and globally relevant content to facilitate knowledge-building, community building and speedy mobilisation of groups to transform their world, in addition to giving civil society advocates a timely and speedy voice in global decision making processes.
