Announcement: First ICA Webinar on Mapping for a Sustainable World

The United Nations identified seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in an effort to address the most pressing problems facing our world. Well-designed maps and diagrams can assist in achieving these goals.

With this in mind the International Cartographic Association together with United Nations Geospatial Information Section has written the book Mapping for a Sustainable World. It offers guidelines for mapping geographic datasets related to the SDGs at both regional and global scales. Applied examples and open data that can be used in Geography coursework as well as best practices for cartographic design are presented throughout the book.

The authors of the book will take you on a journey of the timeline of the creation of the book and will share their experiences. We look at the creation, the content and the use of the book.

This webinar taking place on July 14, 2021 at 16:00 CET, will be of interest to those who want to create and use “SDG maps” to achieve a Sustainable World in the classroom and beyond and are interested in Open Education.
