- Mogadishu, Somalia
Somalia’s history has been long dominated by raging conflicts and aggressive, authoritarian governments. Today Somalia has yet to fully heal, but the nation’s capital of Mogadishu is quickly becoming the world’s greatest success story. To provide a catalyst for community-level engagement and change, the Mayor of Mogadishu, Mohamoud Nur, has teamed up with Urban Interactive Studio and strategic planning firm Sutika Sipus, to create an online platform for Somali returnees and all those who witness the changes in Mogadishu to share their experiences. Now, with a means for broad, global communication among all stakeholders, Mogadishu is undergoing radical transformation from the ground up.
