Our events are open to all interested students, volunteers and professionals. The main aim of our events is to build a platform for exchange and to enable people with different backgrounds, knowledge, experience and skills to come together, to share ideas and learn how to get engaged in disaster mapping activities.

Therefore, we have a variety of events and activities that we organize in Heidelberg and beyond. These include guest lectures, hands-on workshops and discussion forums to build bridges between young academics, volunteers, professionals and humanitarian organizations.

We furthermore are proud supporters of the Mamapa Mapathons in Mannheim, a great initiative enabling exchange between migrants and our great community, see here for more information.

Interested to join our events? Then watch out for our upcoming events! No previous knowledge necessary. Just bring your mouse and laptop if available as we have only a limited number of PCs available.
