Reflections from the VCSP Wisdom Workshop, January 2021

28 and 29 January 2021


The Volunteer Community Surveyor Program (VCSP) led by the FIG Young Surveyors Network hosted a 2-day Wisdom Workshop on the 28th and 29th of January 2021 with active participation from 125 young and ‘seasoned’ surveyors from 44 countries from around the world.  Support from leading organisations such as Cadasta, the Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) of the UN-Habitat, Kadaster, and Spatial Collective, made for an engaging learning and sharing experience for all.

 “Community Problems, Land Tenure and Tools for Land Management'' were taught on Day 1 while participants were engaged with the process of “Building Capacity and Implementing Modern Land Management Approaches” on Day 2 under the overall theme of “Sustainable Solutions for Land Based Community Problems - Tools and Modern Approaches”.  Have a look at the programme here and for learning in your own time, have a watch of the YouTube videos from each session here.
