We’re delighted to report that #MapJam 3.0 was a great success and a testament to the ever-growing interest in showcasing and utilizing community-based sharing resources. More than 200 people came to #MapJam events in cities around the world, including Beirut, Gothenburg, Lisbon, Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco, and Toronto, to create and update public maps of resources in their communities that foster sharing.

Most of the groups that participated in #MapJam in April launched community maps for the first time. They plan to continue the process of contributing to these maps in the coming months. Other groups that had already established community maps focused on updating and promoting them. You can view the full list of maps here

Given the great turnout at all the events last month, we’ve decided to host two more rounds of #MapJam this year — in June and October.

If you missed hosting or participating in #MapJam in April, we invite you to join us during #GlobalSharingWeek — from June 5-11, for the second round.
