Did you know that, as SSSI members, you are also members of FIG, the International Federation of Surveyors?
The FIG Young Surveyors are running a program which might be of interest to you - the January 2021 Wisdom Workshop - ‘Sustainable Solutions for Land Based Community Problems: Tools and Modern Approaches’, scheduled for 29-30 January, held online.
If you are interested in spatial, surveying, humanitarian work and supporting vulnerable communities (from your own home, and perhaps in later months or years in person once the global pandemic is under control), click here to apply.
The intended audience for this workshop includes any interested volunteers in the land administration sector or from other disciplines within and outside the Geomatics discipline, especially Young Surveyors - no matter where you are in the world. Participants have been selected on early registration, ensuring diversity and willingness to volunteer.
This Wisdom Workshop aims to improve the capacity of participants in building and implementing sustainable solutions for land based community problems and to develop soft skills for humanitarian surveying. Through attending, you will learn to:
- Recognize the VCSP goals, core values and how to improve them
- Develop open technologies and humanitarian skill sets necessary for the projects you volunteer on
- Network professionals to leverage assistance for the project you volunteer on
- Design ways to achieve the deliverables of partners involved in the volunteering project
- Evaluate how tenure security challenges affect community development.
- Organize your volunteering experience through the use of reflective tools and methods.
The format of the workshop will be:
- Day 1: Community Problems, Land Tenure and Tools for Land Management (4 hours, online via Zoom)
- Day 2: Building Capacity and Implementing Modern Land Management Approaches (3.5 hours, online via Zoom)
See you there!
