This October 13th-27th, the Intercontinental Network for the Promotion of Social Solidarity Economy (RIPESS) is joining with the Sharing Cities Network and other partners to invite you to the Second Annual Global #MapJam to bring activists together in cities around the world to map grassroots sharing projects, cooperatives, community resources, and the commons. Mapping all of the shared resources in your city not only shows that another world is possible–it shows it’s already here! Last October, communities collectively mapped 50 cities in just two weeks. Help us raise this number this year!
Asset maps are powerful tools for organizing and communications. They make community assets more visible–creating a base for further community development, leading to new collaborations and illuminating openings for new project ideas to fill in the gaps. They also get great visibility!
Sign up your city to join with RIPESS and Sharing Cities Network to put Social Solidarity Economy on the map !
Scheduled to correlate with New Economy Week, the Map Jam will launch on Indigenous People’s Day and continue for 2 weeks from Monday, October 13th – Sunday, the 27th. Global Map Jam Day will take place on October 16th featuring a 24hr mapping ‘round the world across multiple continents and timezones.
