Help Comic Relief on their mission...

We aim to solve the world’s biggest problems using geography. Putting our heads together, we believe that creative maps can make all the difference. This one day event is designed to infuse geography with creative minds. The aim is to produce stunning content to help Comic Relief on their mission to be a just world, free from poverty.

The Details

So how will it work? Comic relief has a couple content challenges that you could help solve. When you register to attend you can choose which challenge you would most like to work on. We will do our best to put you in a group to work on your selected challenge. As well as solving a real life challenge you will have the chance to work with different people from the UK’s top creative agencies, make new connections and learn new skills…and all for a great cause.
We will send you videos a couple of weeks in advance of the actual event to show you how to use the mapping technology, giving you time to think ahead and prepare for the day.

The Challenge

These challenges have been set by comic relief and have been categorised into two areas:
#ThisMapCan
Drive Donations
Encourage fundraisers to share selfies and stories about their fundraising efforts in an engaging way, encouraging others to take part. Create a social buzz, a desire to join in on the action and map the funny! More details to follow…
#ThisMapCan
Drive Engagement
How would you make the existing map on comicrelief.com more engaging? Challengers will be tasked to develop/reinvigorate the existing map on CR.com to show the difference made through the thousands of projects Comic Relief funds worldwide. More details to follow...

The Technology

Learn how to use ground breaking mapping technology to create interactive content. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills for content creation. There will be plenty of support for using the technology so you do not need to be a tech head, however we do need you to bring along your creative ideas to turn maps into compelling content.
