I also would love to contribute to this effort.

We just got our Certificate in FOSS4G approved by the university and the commission on higher education.

We will start offering it fully online Fall 2017. For now is on campus only.

Suchith, Karl, I will gladly contribute with this initiative. I'm not the person to lead the book project but surely I can help with it.

Asunto: [OSGeo-Discuss] EUROGEO 2017 & Inviting ideas for compiling a book to record "GeoForAll" developments and initiatives

Dear colleagues,

Professor Karl Donert (President EUROGEO and Director European Centre of Excellence, digital-earth.eu University of Salzburg, Austria) has kindly invited me to deliver a keynote presentation at EUROGEO 2017  in Amsterdam on 2-3 March 2017.  EUROGEO promotes the European dimension in geographical education as a contribution towards the development of European citizenship. By doing so, EUROGEO encourages the development of a greater European awareness through the medium of geography and increases mutual knowledge and understanding of Europe. Details at http://www.eurogeography.eu.gridhosted.co.uk/about-2/

EUROGEO 2017 will aim to address cross-cutting issues such as:

    How does geographical education respond to needs of society and the world around us?
    Does geographical education give young people the necessary tools they need to think spatially?
    How do new technologies and open access to data help engage youngsters?
    How should education respond to the ever-increasing importance of geographic information?

I will aim to actively share GeoForAll ideas at the event and welcome colleagues to proactively contribute to these important discussions.You can find details of the conference at http://www.eurogeography.eu/conference-2017-amsterdam/

This is really good opportunity for us to proactively contribute to these important discussions. Ela from Poland and some of our GeoForAll colleagues are actively involved in EUROGEO, so this is a good opportunity for us to further expand collaborations.

Topics may include but are not limited to:

    early years geography education
    geography in primary school
    high school developments
    curriculum development and change
    university level teaching and learning
    innovation and change
    the use of new technologies
    employability and careers

Karl also put forward an excellent idea for compiling a book to record "Geo for All" developments and initiatives. If fact , our colleagues in various labs are contributing to each of the topics above from early year geography education to innovation and change, so it will be great to have a book compiled with all the global inputs. I would like to welcome inputs from the wider community for this. We will need one lead person from GeoForAll to lead this book project. Please let me or Karl (cc in) know if you are interested.

Best wishes,
