November 13th–19th is Geography Awareness Week. Join us as we prepare to
make the third annual OSM Geography Awareness Week (“OSM GeoWeek”) the best
ever. OSM GeoWeek 2016 calls on teachers, students, community groups,
governments, private sector, map lovers, and motivated individuals around
the world to come together to celebrate geography and make maps with
OpenStreetMap, the free and openly editable map of the world.

Many organizations are partnering with HOT for OSM GeoWeek 2016 (
www.osmgeoweek.org) including Missing Maps, the U.S. State Department (
MapGive), USAID (YouthMappers), the Peace Corps, National Geographic, and
the World Bank’s GFDRR. OSM GeoWeek presents a great opportunity for HOT
community members to come together and map to reduce disaster risks and
address public health crises. Represent your school, community, or
workplace during OSM GeoWeek anytime between November 13th-19th as we
remotely map areas to assist ongoing humanitarian, development, and public
health efforts around the world.

If you have ever thought it might be fun to get together with co-workers,
friends, students and/or strangers to share your enthusiasm for the power
of maps, and make a difference while doing it, OSM GeoWeek is the perfect
time. Events can be of any size, as small as 10 people and as large as a
150 people. Anyone can do it and we have all the materials to help you host
your mapathon (and to learn how to map). Guides: http://osmgeoweek.org/guides/

Registering an event is easy, just fill out this Google form
and your event will be registered on http://osmgeoweek.org/.

We hope you can join us! Please share this invitation with your colleagues
and networks, and students of all ages.

Thank you,

Tyler (on behalf of the OSM Institutions Group)
