Tech Meets Conservation: Meetup 2
Transcript of Tech Meets Conservation: Meetup 2
The organisation focuses on a holistic view of the environment as opposed to just trees and forests as most people know. Raising awareness about all this and getting more people engaged and on-board
Monitoring and publicly reporting pollution/environmental degradation could help get more people RELATING to the issues on the ground Solution Incentives are needed to get developers interested in creating the apps and solutions that can drive the conservation agenda
Packaging of developed solutions could also help drive their uptake: show that it curbs/solves a distinct problem and meets a need. But in some cases, even getting the development going is a costly affair, needing a lot of funding which is hard to come by.
(a hospitality hypothesis) Pushing the bottom-lines of businesses towards a focus on the environment - "you destroy, you lose"
Getting our "money's worth" in terms of products that are apparently eco-friendly, like "low-sulphur" fuel.
The apparently low-sulphur fuel we get in Kenya has several times more sulphur than that in Europe. Why the double standards? Campaigns are often forced to shut down by strong-arming people who protest against environmental injustices. #OccupyNow?
Ushahidi for the environment? Getting people curious, involved. Give them a map and a voice so they can tell THEIR stories and see others'. Going to the grass-roots, putting people in a position to stand up for their natural resources - as the Green Belt Movement does through its conservation campaigns. Social media is a powerful tool. It gets people involved, aware and proactive. Locally its power has been shown with initiatives like #OccupyParliament www.hellopeter.com - Example of a potential GCP that can be used to guide development of a "naming and shaming", info sharing and awareness-raising platform. Tell the story that touches ALL ...and we'll pick one, or many, that we can share with the world Tech Applications in Conservation (Meetup 2)
