About ‘The Power of Mapping’

This event is part of CCE’s series of events on the potential of mapping to strengthen communities’ ability to know their neighbourhood and plan for its future. Why mapping? In cities around the world, community and neighborhood organizations are using mapping tools to assist them in visioning, planning and advocating for their needs. It’s a useful tool for people to understand their communities, represent themselves and their perspectives, and plan for their futures.
