Geographers Without Borders - UWaterloo (GWB-UW) is a growing chapter that has adopted the broader GWB mandate of applying geographical skills in order to tackle social and environmental issues at local and regional scales. Since the formation of the club in May 2015, GWB-UW has spearheaded several projects in the fields of ecology, transportation and entrepreneurship. We address these social and environmental issues through projects in two ways. Firstly, we expand upon students' education by offering lectures and workshops in geography to students looking to enhance their skills and knowledge in the field and who are aiming to solve real-world problems. In addition, we have initiated a number of mapping projects which are used as a means to communicate local and regional information within a visual and spatial context.
