At the think and be-tank for a collaborative society Ouishare we had an all GIG panel, reunited to discuss and share ideas and projects on grassroots collaboration for improving our lives in fast changing cities from the global south perspective. Brazil, Marocco, Rwanda and Kenya were represented by Asmaa Guedira, Ouishare connector and project manager of Womanity, Georgia Nicolau from Procomum Institute, Jon Stever from The Office/Impact Hub Kigali and Nanjira Sambuli from Web Foundation.

The group discussed projects such as #i4policy, which is strengthening civic participation in discussing public policy on the African continent. The discussion format was a fishbowl which allowed for a lot of input and examples from the public on how civil society and civic initiatives can change the realities in the cities by collaborating, documenting and sharing.
