VCSP e-Volunteering event in early 2023: Developing a Land Tenure Reform System for Mars Attention Young Surveyors everywhere!

The VCSP are planning to host an online a two-week hackathon-style event in early 2023 that focuses on allowing individuals to get together into groups to work on the development of a (hypothetical) Land Tenure Reform System for Mars. In our event, we have a (creative imaginary) scenario where Martians will be willing to allow humans to share their planet, but both parties need to reach an agreement for cohabitation to work. Event participants can work as individuals or be teams and will work remotely during this event to achieve a common goal. With exciting updates provided every second day to further the scenario and keep you thinking, this proves to be a fun, engaging and innovating global event.
