Welcome to join us at ISPM conference 2019, held in Helsinki, Finland!
Participatory mapping is at the forefront of community engagement, social change, and sustainability practice. Please join an international community of academics, planners, and practitioners in Helsinki as we share state of knowledge in participatory mapping methods, outcomes, and future direction. The conference theme, "Let the people map" highlights the bridge building between research and practice, theory and methodology, south and north.
Organized for the second time, the International Society of Participatory Mapping (ISPM) conference brings together scholars, planners and practitioners working with participatory mapping and spatial participatory methods. Hosted by Aalto University in Finland, the 2019 conference provides a platform for presenting recent advances within the field of participatory mapping and initiating discussion on the current state and future directions of the research. Rapidly increasing applications of participatory mapping methods within and beyond academia challenge the community to enhance transdisciplinary collaboration and to advance the circulation of good practice. With the theme "Let the people map", the ISPM 2019 conference invites us to approach these questions with a special focus on novel ways of facilitating dialog between participatory mapping researchers and practitioners.
The conference will take place 17-19 June 2019, just at the right time to enjoy the Midsummer in Finland and for a great opportunity to experience the never-setting midnight sun.
