Yesterday officially kicked off the 3rd annual global #MapJam and we’re so excited to see the latest group of individuals, groups and organizations crowdsourcing the sharing economy in their cities. These local mapping initiatives are cultivating a new economic paradigm simply by making it visible. With 16 events confirmed and many more in the works across Europe, Middle East, North and South America and Oceania, this truly is a global collaboration.
It’s not too late to schedule a MapJam for your community - don’t worry if you can’t do it in the next 2-4 weeks. Some groups have already begun to organize events after the official window and will be riding the groove beyond April. Other organizers have identified existing events in their community to tag a MapJam onto in order to get more participants. You could even just invite over a few friends and do it over dinner or some beverages.
You may feel like you’re the only one doing this work in your city or maybe just one of a few people in Beirut or a handful in Rio De Janeiro, but when we work together we make a movement!
