A new Kickstarter campaign is hoping to raise a goal of $3,500 to fund the second annual MAPEO Borderless Workshop - a workshop that focuses on community mapping and brings diverse people and minds together to think about cities within the US-Mexican border region. By rallying individuals from different disciplines with different backgrounds, MAPEO aims to "learn more about our own cities, evaluate urban challenges and come up with ideas on how to improve our life in cities in a very quick and meaningful exercise."

More on the workshop and how you can help after the break.

The MAPEO Workshop examines the urban conditions and challenges facing Northern Mexican cities of the Chihuahua region during an intense four day period of work that brings together 12 students from different universities as well as professionals and experts in architecture, regional planning and anthropology. The process is characterized by research, conversations with guest experts and the exchange of information and ideas about local water resources and systems, manufacturing industry and economy, mobility and ecology and other topics.

The funds raised by the Kickstarter campaign will help to support the workshop itself, as well as the production of a video to show the world its processes and findings. Last year's video gives a glimpse into the landscape and lifestyle of the Chihuahua region and highlights the collaboration necessary to understand and confront this area's complicated and interconnected circumstances.
