About Group 6
Ashley has an interest in environmental justice and the way local and global communities are adopting technologies ranging from drones to social-media platforms to enhance activism against environmental degradation and combat dangerous levels of anthropogenic climate change. Ashley is based in the post-soviet south Caucasus country of Armenia, which has recently undergone a ‘velvet’ revolution leading to a transitional government, underpinned by significant political and democratic change. Ashley will be observing how ICT, particularly social media content, will affect this.
