YouthMappers Documentary: The Power of a Global Open Data Movement

This event will air the first viewing of the YouthMappers documentary. After the video, you will be able to ask questions of the panel of YouthMappers members and mentors, and participate in a demonstration of the mapping technologies used to bring light to development needs. Video Trailer.

YouthMappers is a global movement of university students creating and using open spatial data to address development challenges and resilience, in their own communities, and together across borders. Meet some of the student leaders effecting change across the globe and follow the work of a student-led project in Sierra Leone supporting rural electrification for expanded electricity access. The signature project features technical innovations from students and faculty from ASU, which serves as the lead fiscal university for the network. Hear the voices of YouthMappers members who have not only built their mapping skills but have grown as global citizens.
