Tell Your Story

Tell Your Story with the International Year of Global Understanding
Under the auspices of the IGU’s International Year of Global Understanding, the European Association of Geographers (EUROGEO) and the the IGU Commission for Geography Education (IGU-CGE) will organise a Story Map competition “Tell Your Story” with the support of ESRI Inc.
The competition will be officially launched at the EUROGEO Conference in Malaga, at end of September 2016 and the deadline for submission of entries will be in December 2016.
There will be two age group categories, one for high school students aged 15-19 to share their perspectives on local meeting global and the other for university students who will be invited to share their research.
The Story Maps should relate to the “Key Messages” of the International Year and be developed under one (or more) of the six themes of the Year, namely:
1. Eating/drinking//surviving
2. Moving/staying//belonging
3. Working/housing//urbanizing
4. Communicating/networking//interacting
5. Wasting/recycling//preserving
6. Sports/entertaining//recreating
Support for participants will be provided through the International Year of Global Understanding Regional Action Centres and online through the Help files
