YEO Ecosystem Map
YEO 2030 developed this interactive map as a tool to assist youth-serving organizations in identifying possibilities for collaboration, pinpointing areas of overlap, and discovering gaps. The map is useful for building networks and understanding opportunities for collaboration by region or YEO thematic area. Individual and organizational members of the YEO 2030 Initiative will have access to the map. To learn more about membership, please contact our team today.
To update current organizations profiled or add new organizations, please contact the YEO 2030 team.
This interactive map is a tool for YEO stakeholders to identify others operating in the YEO ecosystem. The map includes a dot for each entity, which provides information about that entity when clicked on. The map only includes organizations that explicitly and directly contribute to youth economic opportunities. These organizations are global and regional entities. Including national and local organizations would increase the number of entities exponentially and make the tool unwieldy.
When viewing the map, you will see who is connected and how they are connected, as well as which type of organizations are in the system. From local youth-serving organizations who want to identify opportunities for collaboration to global coordinating bodies looking to strengthen partnerships based on gaps and areas of overlap, this resource is meant to complement and strengthen ongoing activities in the YEO space.
Ecosystem Map Views:
When exploring different views and connections, you can see who is connected by YEO 2030 Thematic Area, YEO 2030 Sub-theme, or Specialties. The map can also be used to identify potential partners by geography and analyze global trends in the ecosystem by specific actors such as funders and companies. Youth-serving organizations can use the map to find like-minded partners, identify a partner who can fill a gap for them, or engage with an organization that has information on promising practices they want to learn more about.
How to Navigate and View the Map:
The landing page presents a global view of the map, which is made up of dots that represent the YEO community of organizations and lines that represent the connections. Each dot represents an entity that can be filtered to learn more about an organization. Other dots represent entities that are part of multi-stakeholder initiatives, implementers, funders, and the private sector, and can be highlighted using the color-coded legend.
To activate the filter, click on the "Settings" button at the top right of the landing page and adjust your selection by size, color, shape, and connections. You can filter out entity types; explore different connections; and select multiple elements or connections. You can also find some pre-filtered views in the pulldown menu at the bottom right of your screen.
To focus in and out, click on “+” to zoom in, “-” to zoom out, and “-><-” to zoom fit the whole map in the frame. You can also zoom in and out by using your mouse’s roller or by clicking the plus and minus icons at the top-right of the map.
To view different parts of the map, grab and move the map background with your mouse to reposition your view. Hover over any element to see a pop-up summary of its profile.
