Organizing For Change Challenge

About Organizing for Change

Organizing for Change is a coalition of B.C. environmental organizations whose mission is to build public support for environmental initiatives. At the local level, we empower individuals and groups to advocate effectively on issues of local concern. At the provincial level, we highlight opportunities for the government to build track records of environmental achievement. Organizing for Change is a project on MakeWay’s shared platform, which is a national Canadian charity dedicated to a healthy environment, social equity, and economic prosperity.

Their Challenge

Lichen is a strategic collective impact effort that aims to improve the conservation movements and allied Indigenous Nation's visual storytelling capacity. The core of Lichen is a visual content library that gives collaborating groups and communities access to thousands of high quality photos made and sourced specifically for them. We're looking to further expand our storytelling by creating an app called "Where Am I" that identifies where the user is, and lets them know who's Indigenous Territory they are on, a brief history about that Nation, their laws, and any other information the Nation wishes to share. We'd like the app to be able to share even more specific details if specific areas are registered, for example, a fishing ground, or old village site.
