When you’re out and about at one of these meet-ups or contributing wheelchair-accessibility information to Google Maps, don’t forget to share your discoveries on social using #LocalGuides and #a11y.
The Local Guides team is hosting meet-ups in Copenhagen, Surabaya, Buenos Aires, Santiago, London, New York, and Tokyo. We’ll be posting highlights and livestreams on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and YouTube, so be sure to follow along.
As for me, I’ll be co-hosting tomorrow’s meet-up in Buenos Aires. I can’t wait to share my experience meeting Local Guides and learning about accessibility in the city!
