Global Witness is an award-winning international NGO that works to expose and tackle the root causes of poverty, environmental abuse, and conflict. In the Innovation Studio, Global Witness will produce a blueprint for leveraging emerging technologies, interactive online storytelling and web-based mapmaking in their campaign communications. They will create a publishable interactive digital story in beta and share the findings, process and assets with the NAMAC community. The Innovation Studio will support a virtual design and development braintrust that will refine the idea, test assumptions and guide the creation of a prototype for a new model of participatory storytelling uniquely responsive to the needs of the organization and the communities it serves.
