Transcript

  • 1. MDG mapping project Pilot in SF, Atlanta Followed by national rollout with E4GR.org as key partner
  • 2. The problem:
    • The MDG’s and the problems they focus on seem too big and too far away
    • The solution: show that people and churches you know are working effectively to impact the MDG’s
  • 3. It’s not too far away
    • People you know are doing it
  • 4. It’s not too big
    • People you know are making a difference
  • 5. How to do it:
    • Create maps that link local Episcopal churches with the international places where they are having an impact.
  • 6. Goal:
    • To support understanding and collaboration between people, congregations and dioceses, with identification of MDG opportunities and success stories
  • 7. The result
    • People see that people and churches they know, in their own diocese, are making an impact in ways that make sense, in ways they can get involved in
    • The problems of the world become problems local people are making a dent in. Hope arises, resources follow
  • 8. How to do it
    • Create a platform that local laypeople can use to easily and simply put in their stories, create their maps, and that their international partners can use to tell their stories as well
  • 9. What we hope people will do
    • Map yourself
    • Map your church
    • Talk about your ministry
    • Map places you’ve visited
    • Map pictures of your mission trip
  • 10. Hoped for result:
    • The MDG’s and the problems of global poverty no longer seem impossibly big and too distant to get involved with
    • Instead, people, working through trusted networks, tell their stories and get more people involved, create their own maps and stories, etc.
  • 11. Status
    • Pilot funding approved by the Diocese of California, a technology team and a core team of volunteers engaged
    • Initial project identified
