Project Description – View Tyler’s Project Practicum

Through the Digital Mapping program Ushahidi, I worked with the Community Monitors Action Network in communities around Johannesburg, South Africa. The goal of our project was to document and visually represent detrimental environmental and health problems stemming from mining corporations. In addition, building leadership skills by identifying issues, engaging in dialogue with the community, and reporting back on the problems.
