November 15th-21st is Geography Awareness Week, and HOT and our Missing Maps partners are planning to support it in a huge way this year! We’re aiming for (at least) 100 mapping parties, mapathons, mappy hours and mapternoons happening around the world in a single week, to join with the rest of the activities being planned by other groups and organizations.
