Book Launch: Open Mapping towards Sustainable Development Goals voices of YouthMappers on Community


This event is the official launch of a book collection that amplifies the experiences of some of the world's young people who are working to address SDGs using geospatial technologies and multi-national collaboration.

Authors from every region of the world who have emerged as leaders in the YouthMappers movement share their perspectives and knowledge in an accessible and peer-friendly format. Youth Mappers are university students who create and use open mapping for development and humanitarian purposes. Their work leverages digital innovations – both geospatial platforms and communications technologies – to answer the call for leadership to address sustainability challenges.

The book conveys a sense of robust knowledge emerging from formal studies or informal academic experiences – in the first-person voices of students and recent graduates who are at the forefront of creating a new map of the world.
