YouthMappers is an international network of university groups who respond to the need of humanitarian, disaster relief and development organisations for accurate and detailed maps of areas where people are vulnerable or in immediate need of help.

YouthMappers use open source mapping software and help create digital OpenStreetMaps that are vital to humanitarian relief efforts and to addressing development challenges.

Please come along and take part to directly support the work of those helping people in need.

You do not have to have any mapping experience or bring any equipment to take part. Guidance and refreshments will be provided.

Looking forward to mapping together!
