Hi guys,

I'll just give a short background regarding this event.

Early this year, OSMPH was invited to help out with the crowd-sourced
mapping aspects of the New Mobility Project (“Catalyzing New Mobility
in Cities: The Case of Metro Manila”), which is spearheaded by the
Ateneo School of Government through their Innovations at the Base of
the Pyramid in Southeast Asia (iBoP Asia) initiative.

They had a project launch last January 31 and February 1 where the
target area to be used as an example was North Triangle in Quezon
City. Rally attended that event and we were all pleasantly surprised
to see OSM used as the map. You can check the write-up of that event
from Smart here:

Some photos from that event showing OSM maps are the following:

The project had another event on March 13 and the target area was the
Ortigas CBD.

So this April 21 event is just another one in a series of events for
the New Mobility Project (NeMo). This time the target is non-motorized
transport (i.e., cycling) and the groups invited are cycling advocates
like the Firefly Brigade.

I hope many of you can come. :)
