Mapping International Womens' Day mapping activities

j.chapman
Crowd2Map is planning a number of mapping activities around Mapping to help end FGM on http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/2501 on IWD on Wed 8th, in UK, Lithuania, Tanzania and online, and we wanted to set up a map showing the location of all the mappers helping that people could add themselves to.

Is anyone else planning such an initiative?  Or have any advice on the best way to do this?

Many thanks
Janet
