Dear colleague,

May i request all who are taking part in various Geo events (Geography Awareness Week, OSM Geo Week, GIS day etc ) to also make use of the opportunity to promote Open Principles in GeoEducation by sharing information on GeoForAll and welcoming those interested to be part of this. Please give away OSGeo Live DVDs  and share GeoForAll ideas  at these events.

<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmGoC6iFds4>Open principles in geoeducation (open educational resources, free and open software, open data, open standards etc) are key for  true empowerment of staff and students globally and making geospatial education and opportunities accessible to all [1] . We look forward to working and building collaborations with all interested in this education mission. Access to quality education and opportunities is key for getting rid of extreme poverty and enabling broadly shared prosperity for all.

Our ideas are summarized at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmGoC6iFds4

Millions of globally connected minds working together on the common mission of enabling Open Education opportunities for everyone will be key for making these developments possible. An idea whose time has come is the most powerful force in the universe, and the time for "Access to quality education opportunities for everyone" has arrived.

Education + Empowerment = GeoForAll

Happy GIS Day greetings in advance to all...

Best wishes,
