News on the Barbara Petchenik competition

The ICA Commission on Cartography and Children is happy to announce updates from the Barbara Petchenik competition:

New edition of Children Map the World

Esri published a new book using map drawings sent to the competition in 2015.

Children Map the World: Commemorating the International Map Year, volume 4, presents 50 maps created by children ages 5 to 15 for the 2015 International Cartographic Association map design competition, held in Brazil. These drawings convey powerful messages and emotions that reflect the competition’s theme, “My Place in Today’s World.” This volume includes a special atlas of 50 additional maps selected from previous competitions. Featured in part two of this book, the atlas reflects a worldwide celebration of these outstanding maps and their unique role in our world.

Editors José Jesús Reyes Nuñez (Hungary), Carla Cristina R. G. de Sena (Brazil), Necla Ulugtekin (Turkey), and Pilar Sánchez-Ortiz Rodríguez (Spain) are university-level educators. Their collective expertise encompasses the fields of geography, cartography, map design, 3D cartographic modeling, map projections, and education as it relates to children and mapping.

President’s Blog: A map perspective on the sustainable development goals

The Sustainable Development Goals, officially known as Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development are a UN Initiative. Official website: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org

In the light of the International Map Year (IMY), the ICA and its commissions are highlighting the value of cartography by “mapping” the UN sustainable development goals.

In the past months, a set of posters has been created, one for each sustainable development goal. They do not map the goals and their target based on indicators as such. The poster series tells the story of cartographic diversity, of mapping options, and of multiple map perspectives. Each of the goals has been mapped from a particular perspective by different ICA Commissions. All posters have a short take-home-message that should make one aware of particular strengths of the map.

The posters as well as the catalog for the poster exhibition can be found on icaci.org/maps-and-sustainable-development-goals

A huge thank you to all commissions involved and to Wim Feringa from ITC for the poster design and production. Let’s make the world a better place with maps!
