FIG-YS Volunteer Community Surveyor Program - expression of interest

1 July 2017


Joint competence based volunteer program with Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) (facilitated by UNHabitat) and the International Federation of Surveyors Young Surveyors Network (FIG YSN)

Surveyors of Tomorrow - it is us who should be making a difference in the world. With an estimated 70%
of undocumented land worldwide, increasing effects of climate change, rapid urbanization and increasing
competition over land, a limited resource, we are facing several challenges.

Together with Global Land Tool Network (GLTN), the FIG Young Surveyors Network (FIG YSN) established
a competence based volunteer program for Young Surveyors also known as Volunteer Community Surveyor Program (VCSP). Participants in this program will be known as GLTN/ FIG YSN Volunteer Community Surveyor (VCS). VCSP is an innovative volunteer program that is a powerful driver for both social impact and professional development. The VCSP leverages on the skills, experience, talents and education of young surveyors, matches this competence with the needs of GLTN, particularly in GLTN’s county level implementation plans and programs.

Have you attended one of the STDM Training of Trainers or Awareness Events? And would you like to volunteer your time and skills to join an initiative of the Global Land Tool Network and the FIG young surveyors.

 Expression of Interest With this application form you can express your interest to join the program. Priority will be given to Young Surveyors who have successfully completed a STDM Training or STDM Awareness Event.

Should your interest matches an opportunity and its requirements, we will contact you.
