Hey you! If you are in Chambéry the 18th of October, CartONG invites to come to the GeOnG and celebrate the 10 years of the organization.
We will have various events, including exhibitions, presentations and a mapathon!
A mapathon is a unique and engaging opportunity for volunteers to digitally connect and map the most vulnerable places in the developing world so that local and international NGOs can use these comprehensive maps and data to better respond to crises affecting these areas. Digital volunteer engagement is vital for the success of many humanitarian organizations around the world in responding to disasters. It is imperative to have a larger pool of trained volunteers that are ready to assist with little coordination when a disaster occurs. Check out the videos below to learn more about what a mapathon is and how to host one.
To register for the mapathon (17h00), take your ticket here. The entrance to this gathering is free!
