As a solution to identifying an issue that arises from a power imbalance, I designed an app that translates your step count and distance walked or ran into protected indigenous land in the Amazon. The cause will help prevent deforestation, illegal land grabs and eviction of indigenous land and provide support for indigenous communities to continue their protection of our planet’s biodiversity. Concurrent to this, the cause will promote healthier habits in the UK public whilst providing an education on indigenous people’s rights through interactive storytelling.
