Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2017
This description of Gael Musquet's work was prepared when Gael Musquet was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2017.
Gaël is encouraging communities to create "digital citizen security corps" to better anticipate and respond to crisis, with an initial focus on natural disasters. Beginning in Guadeloupe, where he successfully demonstrated what the effect of a digitally prepared citizen security corps would be, Gaël now spreads this idea in other French overseas territories; adapting his work, he is also working with citizen groups in the South of France to improve firefighting, and lobbying towards local public authorities to incorporate this digital citizen security corps in their emergency response plan.
