While working in crowd sourcing information in Haiti, we realized that the picture of the situation does not lie in the hands of any individual. We were helping thousands of citizens get information based on data from journalist stringers, who went at great pains in understanding the situation in port au prince and missed nuances that were only apparent after the fact. The citizens knew these aspects all along and if we only had had a better way to have people collaboratively build the picture of the situation in the camps, the journalists would have had better information and events like the rapid spread of cholera could have been mitigated better.
Seeing the use of social media tools in the recent events in Middle East, was a confirmation that a tool like this was worth exploring.
Especifica tanto el alcance como la escala del impacto social de tu solución hasta la fecha.
This idea is new, but our experience in Haiti shows that information in the hand of citizens causes up to 85% behavior change.
¿Qué impacto esperas que tenga tu iniciativa en los próximos 1-5 años? ¿Es una idea aplicable a otros ámbitos? En caso afirmativo, ¿cómo se podría aplicar?
Our idea is global in scale and tools exist to create channels (text messages, voice, twitter, etc.) in different countries in easy and fast ways. The impact in each instance will depend on the situation, but will generally consist of a better collective knowledge of a story as it unfolds - including seeing divergent opinions, misinformation and gaps.
