TransforMap, in its ecosystem of many maps, delivers value to its users by providing the missing links between individual mapping efforts. Those concerned with enabling broad populations to witness the many places of societal transformations convene there to fill in the gaps between the diverse movements.
This proposal formulates a contribution to the wider transformaps vision by associating existing efforts of mapping the alternatives to a wider ecosystem of enmeshed atlassing initiatives. It aims at redistributing the freed assets into the communities attached to the Commons Space of the World Social Forum (WSF) 2016 in Montréal.
The process of implementing this proposal is embedded into a joint session for aligning long-term cooperations called Mapping the Transformations. A day of wikimapping between the local OpenStreetMap, Remix the Commons, TransforMap Partners and further WSF or local communities will enable to strengthen the weak ties and establish new links.
For the support of local activities which happen to be stalled by the mere lack of initial funding, we propose to plant many small seeds in attached initiatives and thus amplify their and our interdependence.
We suggest EUR 500,00 - 700,00 for this endeavour.
