Any project that uses geographic methods or analysis and maps to address sustainable development issues is appropriate for a MyCOE Project. Projects should be conducted by or with youth, whether from middle school to secondary school to undergraduate or graduate levels students in either formal or informal educational settings. Individuals or groups are encouraged to showcase how geography, geographic perspectives, and geographic tools like maps and GIS, can be used to help their own communities create more sustainable solution to local social, economic, and environmental challenges.
