To celebrate OSM's 17th anniversary in 2021, the Local Chapters and Communities Working Group of the OpenStreetMap Foundation is organising a 17-hour global mapping party on the 8th of August!

17 countries/regions from all around the world will come together, with each local community moderating in an one-hour slot within a 17-hour period on August 8, Sunday. We will use the same Big Blue Button room all day and there will be a different country host every hour.

Anyone is welcome to join any part of the day during the whole duration of the event, whether their local community is hosting or not!

Don't see your country listed and want to get involved? Please feel free to sign up in an empty slot! If there are not empty slots, please reach out to and we'll help find a time.

Join the fun by going to this Big Blue Button Room August 8.

Thanks for celebrating OpenStreetMap with us and don't forget to use the hashtag #OpenStreetMap17!
