This session tackles the following questions:

This session is an intermediary review in the development of this process. It started in December 2013, gathering now over twenty organizations and initiatives. They range from community gardening over collaborative economy to commons. The map is based on OpenStreetMap's technology (OSM).

The session is conceived as a mapping workshop to assess the usability of the interface. Sustainably minded people, linked data aficionados as well as OSM contributors are encouraged to join us.
