One-off volunteering: Missing Maps

Want to volunteer, but not sure what it's like? Scared you won't have the time commitment? Then a one-off volunteering session is perfect for you to get a taster of volunteering. The LSE Volunteer Centre would like to invite you to give your time to a great cause, make some new friends and learn a new skill!

Each year, disasters around the world kill nearly 100,000 and affect or displace 200 million people. Many of the places where these disasters occur are literally 'missing' from any map and first responders lack the information to make valuable decisions regarding relief efforts. Missing Maps is an open, collaborative project in which you can help to map areas where humanitarian organisations are trying to meet the needs of vulnerable people.

So bring your laptop to the event, and we'll start mapping missing information together. Bookings on CareerHub will be open closer to the event, so keep your eyes peeled!
