Why should you join the CartONG volunteer community?
Since its creation, CartONG has benefited from the support of its volunteer community, which makes many projects possible.
By volunteering, everyone also has the opportunity to develop new competences, attend training sessions, and participate fully in CartONG’s main associative life events. Here is what you can expect when joining the CartONG volunteer community:
CartONG welcomes volunteers of all ages and from all backgrounds. No need to be an expert in Geographic Information Systems! Here are the 4 main ways you can join the big CartONG family.
1/ Start by getting to know our association
Mapathon in Pau, November 2021
2/ Get involved from time to time: ever heard of the Missing Maps project?
Missing Maps is an international project which aims to put the world’s vulnerable communities on the map.
3/ Support small and medium-sized NGOs
Discover some examples of projects implemented by our volunteers: a web map to better inform and orient migrant populations in Calais, the update of a database on the changes linked to border restrictions at the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, or a remote sensing project to support an environmental impact assessment in Myanmar.
E-volunteering missions are carried out within the framework of the Volontariat d’Échange et de Compétences, supported by the Fonjep. Learn more here.

4/ Beyond volunteering projects: taking part in CartONG’s associative life
It is not required to speak French to volunteer in CartONG. However, most of our communication with volunteers (newsletters, volunteer happy hour gatherings, mapathons, etc.) occurs in French. It will be easier for you to join our volunteer community if you understand at least a little bit of French.
