Help Artsen Zonder Grenzen en het Rode Kruis bij hun humanitaire hulpverlening

Na het grote succes van vorig jaar vindt op zaterdag 24 maart 2018 opnieuw een nationale Missing Maps Mapathon plaats, georganiseerd door het Nationaal Comité voor Geografie in samenwerking met OpenStreetMap Belgium. Tijdens de vorige editie namen meer dan 350 vrijwilligers deel aan het event, bijna dubbel zoveel dan bij de eerste editie, nu twee jaar geleden. België is hiermee het enige land ter wereld dat een Mapathon op nationale schaal organiseert. Acht universiteiten in Brussel, Vlaanderen en Wallonië zetten hun deuren open voor een hele dag samen ‘mappen’. Kom je steentje bijdragen, en mis deze kans niet om Artsen Zonder Grenzen en het Rode Kruis te helpen bij hun werk in crisisgebieden!
