Citizens are people who can say:

“I belong to this place and it's people and I am willing to act from responsibility for my belonging.”  

John O'Brien

Maps can be powerful. They can tell a story, sharing information on those things that represent challenges, social injustices, and system issues. Maps can also shine a light on what is strong, those things that help us build community.

What if we gathered to talk about the power of maps for helping us to find our citizenship and create opportunity to take action?

We invite you to join us to explore the power of maps.

We will:

  • Share practical examples and tools for mapping to engage citizens.
  • Discuss what might be possible using these tools and resources.
  • Explore the creation of an international learning community that supports innovation around mapping as a tool or process for deepening citizenship and community building

You don’t need to be an expert in mapping just curious about the power of mapping for citizen action!
