Organize your own local mapping event! Engage people in your community and work with them to rate places for wheelchair accessibility. Together, you can make sure that public places in your area are on the world’s largest wheelchair accessibility database
We support you with information about Wheelmap and provide assistance in planning and running your mapping event.
You can always organize a mapping event with your friends, colleagues, neighbors or (fellow) students. You can also join Wheelmap’s annual mapping campaigns with your mapping event. We usually organize a larger campaign in spring and fall.
Mapping together is twice the fun
You can quickly map specific areas where there are still many places to mark.
On the way, ratings of places already marked can be checked for their correctness.
Besides, you can create more awareness for accessibility among store owners and representatives of the city.
For people who are not (yet) mobility-impaired, it is an impressive experience to change perspective and pay attention to barriers.
Anyone can organize and carry out a mapping event in their own city or region on their own responsibility. As supporting material we offer you a guide for the organization and a handout for the mappers with the Wheelmap mapping criteria. In addition, we will send you an envelope with Wheelmap flyers upon request. This way you can explain to interested passers-by and store owners what Wheelmap.org is.
In addition, we have developed the Mapping Event Planner, a tool that enables simple and efficient planning, execution and evaluation of mapping actions. Afterwards, a small statistic can be created from the results achieved – the impact of the action is therefore directly measurable. Especially for companies it offers a great opportunity for teambuilding measures and to initiate internal change processes towards more inclusivity and diversity. For more information, click here.
We are also happy to provide support for a professionally executed mapping campaign. This can include the following services:
- Telephone consultation
- Blog post on wheelmap.org
- Assistance with the conception of the event
- Layered Photoshop files and graphics support
- Social heroes on site for welcome or presentation
- Follow-up incl. provision of statistics
Depending on the scope and process, we charge an expense allowance for this.
The income enables our non-profit organization Sozialhelden e.V. to continue the professional work around Wheelmap. An initial telephone consultation is always free of charge.
