The #FFFMapsolidarity project

To participate in the #FFFMapSolidarity project—whose aim is to build Solidarity in the climate movement between local activist groups by amplifying and connecting their voices on social media (sharing, recording, registering, appreciating, —please read this PDF that describes the project, how to join, how to participate:

Registering (Recording for the first time)

If your action has never been registered before, register your strike here. It could take a few days before it shows up as registrations are processed manually. You are done, thank you for registering. Remember to check the map after a few days to see that your pin has been added. If it’s a weekly action don’t forget to record regularly.
You can remove your registration anytime you like using the same form, using the "Remove me" option in the "Registration Consent" question. The remove me option is there for GDPR purposes and will fully remove you from the system, including historical actions, for all other options we recommend joining the Map-Count Slack channel, how to do this is described in the contact us section.

Recording via gamechanger

1. Go to the gamechanger page , and search for your town using the "Location Search" box in the top right, press "Search" when you've entered your town name.

2. Some cities have multiple locations, if so you’ll end up on a page looking like below, then choose your location. If not, you can continue with item 2.

3. Press Report on Event

4. Set the date, how many people were there (participants), the organisation that did the action and a URL to that action, like a tweet or a facebook post.

5. Press “Submit Report”

6. Check your record shows in the list.

Now you’re back at the page for your location, I recommend making a bookmark of the Gamechanger page if you’re a regular recorder. Then next time you can do Recording The fast way

If you need any further assistance recording on the map please contact us, or join a recording support group on a social media. We can be found on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Check the "Contact us" section for contact details.


Recording for someone else is basically the same way as recording for yourself. There are a few minor exceptions.

You start from the top of “Via the map” or “Via the lists”, to find that person's recording page in the Gamechanger. Things start to change in step 2 of “Via Gamechanger”. In step 2 check the latest record, and that it’s another date than the day you want to record for, If the date is not yet there you can add the record. In the next step, if you don't know the organisation, set the organisation to “FFFMapCount”, this is a tool on how much self recording is being done, and how much is recorded by map support.

If you are a map support volunteer recording:

After you're done go back to the map, by clicking the globe icon, copy the link of the map you end up on. This link is the direct link to that location, providing the person with an easy starting point. Let the person know their work is recorded and include the link you just copied. Also include a link to this webpage (
