HOT is teaming up with event organizers across the world to bring humanitarian open mapping to new people and places in 2022!

We expect more event collaborations to be added to this list, so watch this space for more updates. And, a huge thanks to all of the event organizers and communities who have engaged with us throughout the last few months. Regardless of whether we were able to work together or not, it is humbling to see the passion that so many people in the open geo / humanitarian space bring to their work.

We have made funding available to support mappers and volunteers to travel to each of the collaborating events in the HOT unSummit programme to learn, share and connect.

That's the whole point of the unSummit, to take the positive message of the humanitarian open mapping movement to new people and places.

You will be able to meet mappers from across the world, learn from new people and organisations, and represent out vibrant global community on the world stage.
