Katlego Mohlabane

Community Development Lead

What does Katlego do at OpenUp?

I maintain relationships with members and champions in the Codebridge Youth programme that facilitates youth-led public participation through civic tech. I also liaise with all the stakeholders involved in the programme to tailor-make it to the needs of the young people that are involved in it.

About Katlego

I am an advocate for civil liberties and societal progress. I know that I don’t have all the answers, that is why I believe in collaboration. Very passionate about civic tech because I believe that technology is the strongest ally that we, the people have. We are able to facilitate public participation, collect data and make that data usable in the easiest way possible. Everyone deserves to have their voice heard, live a decent quality of life and contribute to a society that they trust and are happy to be a part of.
