Perhaps such events could be an opportunity to emphasize how OSM would make a difference in such initiatives.

Unfortunately it appears that "OpenUrban" is not OpenStreetMap related,
nor is it even "Open" (I can't see how to get their data, what license
it's under, etc.) and they appear to be using Google Maps.

There are lots of organizations, with a variety of intents that would
love to use the OSM model of using voluneteers. But the difference with
OSM is that we stand for more than just a bunch of data, we stand for
freedom.
