Participatory mapping training

Date: 24-8 Dec, 2020

Location: Online

A two-part online workshop run by Mapping for Change for Community Rail organisations and groups.

24th November and 8th December, 10:00-12:30pm

Participatory mapping is a powerful tool that increases stakeholder involvement and provides a means for people to express their ideas in an easily understandable and visual format.

This training will be run by Mapping for Change. They are an award-winning social enterprise who specialise in supporting groups and organisations to use participatory methods – including maps and geospatial technologies – to build more sustainable and resilient communities.

Particularly relevant during this COVID-19 pandemic, the sessions will show you how you can continue to engage your community in creative and meaningful ways to create common future visions at-a-distance.

These interactive and creative sessions will explore:

  • Why community engagement is so important and particularly in a COVID-19 world
  • How collaborative mapping and digital engagement can enable the change you want to see in your community
  • Activities and actions that can engage your community in a mapping project
  • How you can start, refine and develop your own community mapping project

Please be aware that this is a two-part workshop so you will need to be able attend both sessions.

Participants will be supported to explore how you can start, refine and develop your own community mapping project so we ask that you bring a past, current or future project idea that you can explore and discuss with others on the course.

This opportunity is for community rail network members only and is free of charge. However, as places are limited we kindly request that only one person per community rail group/organisation attends.

Please ensure you make two separate bookings for each date by clicking the ‘Select date’ button on the Eventbrite page and take note of the cancellation policy.
