Event description

Description

Missing Maps Glasgow returns, at The Project Café on Tuesday 28th November from 6.15pm - 9pm.

The Project Cafe have offered to cater this event, and when you register, you can choose to select a ticket that includes a delicious vegan stew and flat bread, at a cost of £5 payable on the night.

The Missing Maps project helps Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and and other NGOs by creating maps of the most vulnerable communities, providing a vital resource for their on-the-ground staff as well as local people.

Missing Maps mapathons are open to everyone. You can come and learn how to create maps and contribute to a global mapping project, OpenStreetMap. All you need is a laptop, some spare time and enthusiasm, and you can take part in humanitarian work from Glasgow.

At our Missing Maps event in Glasgow, volunteers will be on hand to help you learn how to map at your own pace. If you want to know more about how you can prepare for a mapathon, this guide gives some tips.

We are being generously hosted by The Project Cafe, an amazing community space and social enterprise cafe. We will be at the Cafe from 6.15pm and will be mapping till around 9pm, before we head to the CCA/Saramago Bar for post-mapping drinks!

We have created a facebook page for the event, so please, invite your friends and we look forward to meeting you!
