The My Community, Our Earth: Geographic Learning for Sustainable Development (MyCOE) Partnership encourages young people around the world to ask and develop answers to pressing global issues in their own local communities, using geographic tools, concepts and perspectives. 

Since 2001 when MyCOE was launched at the World Summit for Sustainable Development we have been encouraging and supporting youth and their teachers and mentors in on every continent to use geographic learning for sustainable development. 

Have you or a young person or group you know created an innovative or interesting solution  to a sustainable development challenge in your community using geography, mapping or GIS? Tell us about it so we can share it with others around the world.

To get started, you can use this geoportal and the five-step navigation in the header at the top of this page.  As you click on each step, you will be guided through a five-step process to build your own project.  When you are ready, submit your project according to our guidelines here

All submissions will be reviewed and displayed, and posted online (as seen below) for public viewing.  View, "like" and comment on your favorites to help us select the most popular projects.
