Congratulations to the winners of our recent Mapping Challenge, which launched on Earth Day, April 22nd.

Mozambique (pictured above) was the overall country team winner, with more than 1000 trashpoints uploaded to the app across the country.  Their prize was a free ticket to the African Regional Leaders Academy next month.

Osvaldo Pedro Machaieie (pictured below) took the title of ‘World’s Best Mapper’, being the individual to create the most trashpoints during the week – an impressive 266 of them!  Osvaldo will be rewarded with a goodie bag of items donated by Microsoft and New Rustic, for his valiant efforts.

Osvaldo was also awarded a reusable water flask from Break Free From Plastic, for creating the highest number of plastic trashpoints.

All in all, almost 2000 new trashpoints were created, with 40 countries participating.

The aim of the challenge was to get as many people worldwide as possible mapping the mismanaged waste near them, through the World Cleanup App.
