UNESCO's Young Advocates 4 ESD Challenge is open:

“Young people are a critical population who are leading ESD-related projects, but often do not have the means to access institutional visibility that organizations often can. For this reason, UNESCO is officially launching the Young Advocates 4 ESD Challenge.

We are calling upon all young people under 25 years old to share their voices and stories about how they are promoting ESD-related projects and activities.

We encourage all young advocates for ESD to participate in the challenge in order to have the opportunity to be features in a UNESCO webstory and participate in future ESD events.

Please note that all personal information submitted will be securely kept by UNESCO for internal purposes only. Additionally, UNESCO will not publish any materials without prior consent given by applicants, including parents in the event that the applicant is a minor.”

You can submit your project online. More information on UNESCO's work on education for sustainable development is available on UNESCO's website. Please note that I received this information through a UN newsletter; for any further information please contact UNESCO.

Libretexts

Another useful resource posted from Mastodon. LibreText, free amd open text books on a range of topics. Great if you want an introduction to a subject.

Their Mission

The LibreTexts mission is to unite students, faculty and scholars in a cooperative effort to develop an easy-to-use online platform for the construction, customization, and dissemination of open educational resources (OER) to reduce the burdens of unreasonable textbook costs to our students and society. 

Embedded post – for reference

A good reason to join the millions who have joined Mastodon. If you join then please feel free to follow me on @zleap@qoto.org as I try and boost interesting toots such as the above.

Mobile Devices

Mobile Devices

I decided to write this article after reading the Free Software Journey article. This is part of the wider FSF Freedom Ladder

This article cites several projects that address Mobile phone freedom. There are different hardware options here, from dedicated phones running a FreeOS or ways to flash / install an existing phone with a new freedom respecting OS (sorry if the terminology is wrong here).

Android Based

Other

As you can see from the above list there are quite a few options, some are forks of Android, so I assume that Free Software repositories such as F-droid works and can provide a good range of Apps for users. See below as I am trying to find out about this.

However my area of concern is things like the Mastodon Apps It seems the only Freedom respecting app for Mastodon is Tooter, which is available for another OS called SailfishOS, so yet another option, so we have a really good, powerful social media replacement, but it seems rather limited connectivity from mobile devices, (unless you are running IOS or Android).

I don't feel this is very helpful. Sailfish, to its credit does have what looks like a very good section on development. I feel that for these alternatives to really take off, the apps need to be there, and not just in the hands of developers, but end users such as myself. I am not interested in using mainstream social media.

Also we need to make it clear if an app works on other systems that are derived from Android for example. (see below)

So we need several things

  1. More developers for the actual operating systems
    • Help for people wanting to start with development
  2. More development for the hardware
    • Again help for those who want to get involved
  3. Testers, and help for testers
  4. End users to actually use the system
    • Provide a very easy way for non technical people to report problems
    • Community need to LISTEN to concerns, reports and take action
  5. Ensure ALL these apps are available on ALL the different mobile OSs or as many as possible.
    • This will need developers, testers and users being able to come together.

Free Software and Hardware

Working on some ideas

I have created a thread here on Fediverse Town to try and ask for some information on which apps work on which mobile operating systems, so Android and importantly Android derived Operating systems.

I have also split the OS list up, so that the OS's derived from Android are clearly identified.

I am not making the assumption they just work or that they are in F-droid.

Open Street Map

OpenStreetMap is a map of the world, created by people like you and free to use under an open licence.

Open Street Map is a great project that anyone can get involved with, using open data so mapping data can be used freely in accordance with the terms on the website.

Embedded maps are also interactive


View Larger Map

I am in the process of finding local attractions, business etc and adding links to their websites. This hopefully helps with promotion and helps the website develop generally.
