Subject: [Geo4All] Be a donor - Start Donating Free and Open Source Software so digital divides are bridged within the next decade
In spite of all the geospatial technology developments, students and academics in poor countries and regions were left out for many decades. This is now changing fast, thanks to the great work done by Open communities worldwide. We have now full access for all our geoeducation software education needs thanks to all volunteers of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation.
As part of this year's GIS week celebrations, let us all launch the start of Free and Open Source Software Donation Decade. I am requesting everyone to start donating free and open software so digital divides are bridged within the next decade. You can now donate Free and Open Source Geospatial software to all schools, universities, government, private sector organisations so they all are empowered forever. With Free and Open Source software, Everyone is now elevated as donors.
Please support Open Principles in GeoEducation , so everyone can benefit. The bigger aim is to also to advance STEM education across the world and bring together schools, teachers and students across the world in joint projects and help building international understanding and global peace.
Happy GIS Week everyone. We look forward to you joining us.
