Dearest @Intermapping communities,
in preparation of upcoming activities, we have come to understand that there may be two types of alignment to Intermapping and its charter, that participating people and organisations follow practically.
- One group actively pushes the Intermapping affairs constantly forward on many levels and in many places. This rather loose network consists of passionate individuals, who often mobilise support from their organisations to gather for knowledge exchange and actively relate to mapping activities.
- Another group is surrounding the community for long times and only occassionally getting in direct contact. They seem to be interested in crowdmapping and its practical uses in general and build bridges to other networks.
In preparation of the next event in Berlin, we are asked to reveal ourselves and our communities to the wider public. Despite it may feel foreign to some activist practices to expose one’s identity this openly in the public, this is commonplace for those who are seeking to work globally in the public domain, producing open data and freely licenced open source software. We’re public figures, after all. Let’s stand together to show ourselves who we are.
To support the Intermapping aims, as outlined in the draft of a charter, me and/or my group/collective/organisation would like to sign a …
Letter of Intent
By which we express commitment to participate in group activities and to prepare and run them at times.
Letter of Support
By which we express interest in crowdmapping and its use for what is often called a socio-ecological transformation in general.
If you want to help guessing our social reach, please also do respond with a comment that indicates at least the name of your group/collective/organisation. More details, like a website link or size (i.e. number of members, networks, projects), will only help our exchange.
The actual documents can be prepared afterwards.
