Hi Sergio,

Thank you for this excellent updates and information. Just to inform that I understand the "adding new labs" functionality for the new GeoForAll website should be available soon (myself and Peter Mooney had telemeeting with GetInteractive who are working on this earlier this week). Once it is ready, I will inform and then please ask the members to add the new labs details through the form and it should display in the map etc.

Great to see the student competition and webinars details.

Best wishes,
