A global coalition of partners are hosting mapping events at colleges, community centers and other institutions to map places around the globe.

On the local level, grassroots organizers around the world are holding over
events at local schools and community centers during #osmgeoweek. If you are organizing an event, or even just thinking about it, get in touch at osmgeoweek@gmail.com.

For more details about Geography Awareness Week, and this year's theme of "Civil Rights" take a look at the call for participation. Follow #osmgeoweek on twitter for updates during the week, and share your experiences using the #osmgeoweek hashtag. When editing in OpenStreetMap add the #osmgeoweek2017 hashtag to your changesets to be included in the metrics.


Find an event near you. Or, let us know if you are planning an event, submit the details or get in touch!
