This event is being co-sponsored by the Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Project (HGHRP) as well as Global Education and International Services (GEIS).

Youth Mappers "capitalizes on web-based open geospatial technologies, and a network of universities around the globe. The mission is to cultivate a generation of young leaders to create resilient communities and to define their world by mapping it." The events usually focus on crisis mapping or preventative mapping.
