Thank you Nikos and our amazing team of editors for their volunteer spirit and working to build up  this excellent newsletter which help us expand our education outreach  and build more collaborations. I want to take this opportunity to thank our colleagues at the  University of Newcastle , UK who are our lab of the month for Feb 2016 for all their help and efforts in expanding Geo4All ideas and principles. So big thank you to  Philip James, Stuart Barr, David Fairbairn, Rachel Gaulton, David Alderson, Alistair Ford, Pauline Miller,  Neil Harries and everyone at Newcastle who have supported us.

They are doing  an impressive range of research projects  from addressing weather related climate change hazards and impacts for the Caribbean region (CARIWIG project) to community mapping of flood events. Details can be found on their research pages at https://research.ncl.ac.uk/osgeolab/research/

They are also an inspiration to help us expand OpenCitySmart ideas also. They have an open platform for city data and a large number of observations of travel activity and Air Quality now in place. Details at http://uoweb1.ncl.ac.uk  . They have a further £4m to spend on urban sensing (including traffic monitoring) over the next 5 years following successful UKCRIC funding. All of this is built on open software (and standards where appropriate). There are a number of traffic related projects running off this. Congrats to Phil and colleagues for these excellent developments.

They are also organising later this month (25-26th February 2016),  a symposium on urban living labs aiming to bring together urban living labs from around the world to share practical and scientific experiences, and to build an international network of urban living labs and their teams. So i will recommend anyone interested to attend this conference  http://conferences.ncl.ac.uk/livinglabconference/   and expand ideas.

We welcome you to read and share our newsletter at http://www.geoforall.org/newsletters/

Best wishes,
