    The documentary will premiere at the State of the Map and FOSS4G in Florence in August.
    YouthMappers is a global movement of university students addressing development challenges and community resilience using public geospatial tools and data. Meet the student leaders effecting change in their communities across the globe and follow the work of a student-led project in Sierra Leone supporting rural electrification for expanded electricity access. Hear the voices ofYouthMappers members who have not only built their mapping skills through YouthMappers but have grown as global citizens.
