A crash course in changing the world.
I think it is very difficult to say how Ushahidi can help in Wolfsburg, because here are no catastrophes like in Kenya for example.
The probability that tsunami oder a hurricane ruin the environment is not that high like in other countries where Ushahidi is used.
But I remember an important topic which was talked of. The EHEC-virus gain currency very fast and a lot of people died. During this time the people in our environment was informed how to protect themselves but now the virus is still disseminated and no one knows it.
I think in situations like this Ushahidi can inform us while the daily news do not talk about it anymore.
Furthermore in my city a lot of people depend on Volkswagen. If this company goes out of business there would be a lot of jobless people.
Ushahidi can help to mediate new jobs. That is not that information that Ushahidi spread in countries like Kenya but we have to make differences between industrial countries and developing countries.
