The 2022 Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Teams unSummit is going to bringing communities, partners, and supporters around open mapping, OpenStreetMap, humanitarian response, and social impact. In our ongoing mission to bring together communities, partners, collaborators, and supporters of humanitarian open mapping, we are trying a fresh approach to the HOT Summit. Instead of hosting a single event, this year we are investing our time and resources in supporting global, regional, and local conferences and community events around the world to bring the spirit of the Summit to thousands of new people. We are calling this the "HOT unSummit," emphasizing the continuity of this new approach with HOT's flagship annual event without claiming a 'higher ground' compared to the events we partner and collaborate with. The HOT unSummit will be a world tour of collaborating events over the course of 2022, and you can watch this page for the latest updates on what's coming up.
