OSGeo Community,

This is a call for help from those who have expertise in OSGeo mail lists to help us setup the following new mail list for our regional groups as part of our expansion. We have also now appointed new chairs for all 5 regions (North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Asia) to take forward our expansion plans.

Details at http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Geoforall_criteria

So we need to setup the following 9 mail lists.

geoforall-northamerica at lists.osgeo.org
geoforall-southamerica at lists.osgeo.org
geoforall-africa at lists.osgeo.org
geoforall-asiaaustralia at lists.osgeo.org
geoforall-europe at lists.osgeo.org
geoforall-urbanscience at lists.osgeo.org
geoforall-teachertraining at lists.osgeo.org
geoforall-spanish at lists.osgeo.org
geoforall-awards at lists.osgeo.org

I can send the details of the administrators of each group (they will the chairs of each group) also. 

You can find more background info at http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/ica-osgeo-labs/2015-February/001104.html 

Could anyone help us with this. If, so, please let me know . Your help is greatly appreciated so we can expand our Openness in Geoeducation mission with more impact.

Best wishes,


PS: I would also like to share the good news from Phillip Davis post [1] that 4000 students are enrolled for their March 2015 cohort . This is really amazing. Thanks to all colleagues in GeoAcademy for their hardwork and efforts.
