Mapping – a follow up

On Open Data Day, March 6th Luis and Aimee hosted an openspace event to talk about all things mapping for the permaculture community.

Three main topics emerged:

  • (How) can mapping help connect permaculture communities / allied network?
  • Knowing Ourselves, Increasing our Collective Potential – Proposal from Andy Goldring:
  • Sharing tools for various types of mapping

If you are interested to get to know more about the sessions, you can have a look around this miro board: password mapping11

As a result from this session, different initiatives have emerged (some progressing faster than others):

  1. The permaculture colab website now includes an Allied Movements page which is a small step in the direction to make all the good projects at play visible
  2. The digital circle is looking to find and test a good [add function e.g. communications, mapping..] platform to connect the colab ecosystem with other networks
  3. Andy’s proposal is ripe to be picked up and worked on – should you feel called to it please do come forward and we’ll help you to help permaculture!

If you’re interested in collecting, curating and making sense from data on the movement of movements, the next MAPATHON: Mapping Hackathon 2021 will be held on Sunday, October 17, 2021, for 24 hours everywhere. Book your place here:
