Wednesday July 14, the International Cartographic Association, together with the United Nations, organized its first ever webinar Mapping for a Sustainable World based on the book with the same title just published by the United Nations. The authors, both from the International Cartographic Association and United Nation’s Geospatial Information Section took the 80 participants on a journey along the timeline of the creation of the book and shared their experiences.
The webinar can be (re)watched here:
The webinar aimed at 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. 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 and were highlighted during the webinar.
