YouthMappers documentary “The Power of YouthMappers: Shining a Light on The Movement”

The members of the UPRI YouthMappers were featured in the global YouthMappers documentary released last September 7, 2022. It premiered during the  State of the Map 2022 and FOSS4G in Florence, Italy. In this short documentary, the student leaders who are affecting change in their communities across the globe followed the work of a student-led project in Sierra Leone supporting rural electrification for expanded electricity access. You’ll hear the voices of YouthMappers members, including the members of the UPRI YouthMappers, who have not only enhanced their mapping skills through YouthMappers but have grown as global citizens.

In partnership with the Geographic Society of UP, UPRI YouthMappers also hosted a watch party, Illuminate, for the global premiere of YouthMapper’s documentary entitled “The Power of YouthMappers: Shining a Light on The Movement”.
