2016 is the International Year of Global Understanding (IYGU), that was initiated and developed by Professor Benno Werlen from Friedrich Schiller University Jena. In september 29th IYGU launched a Story Maps Competition together with the European Association of Geographers (EUROGEO), and the IGU Commission on Geographical Education during the EUROGEO conference in Málaga, Spain, with the generous support of ESRI.

The International Year of Global Understanding (IYGU) Story Maps Competition is a contest aimed at young people from around the world to help raise awareness of the global implications of local everyday actions. The project is in line with the thematic core aspects outlined below.

About the Competition

There will be two age group categories: (1) high school pupils aged 15-19 and (2) university students aged 19+. They are invited to share their perspectives and research on topics associated with global understanding by creating story maps that examine and address the ways in which we inhabit our increasingly globalized world. The created story maps should relate to the Key Messages of the International Year of Global Understanding (IYGU) and be developed under one (or more) of their six themes for the year.
