Hi Jo,

For the mapping side of things, I think having a personal connection with
where you map is always a good starting point for returning to OSM (eg
places you're familiar with, neighboring towns that have received less
attention on the map). Adding the additional details beyond what one can
see in the imagery can go a long way.

A recent blog post from Mapillary, OSM-US, GeoChicas, and HOT highlighted a
number of ongoing mapping initiatives that could also use support, as well
as other opportunities to contribute [1].

While a longer term commitment, working groups within the OSMF would also
benefit from increased involvement. While I can't speak to any specific
group needs, I know it comes up often.

All the best and welcome back,
