New Mobile Site Collector, thanks to YOU!

Thank you Global Giving donors – with your support, Green Map System has launched a fast fun new Mobile Site Collector today!

 

Designed to extend engagement and involve new participants in making Open Green Maps, the Collector is a responsive webapp that can be used on smartphones, tablets or on the desktop. It can even be used offline in areas without wifi.

 

The Collector has both Simplified and Traditional Chinese interfaces! We expect these to be among the most popular of its 13 language options. Residents, visitors, students alike - all can collect great green living sites with ease. Every site is reviewed by the local mapmaker, and each is automatically acknowledged once it's live on the map. 

 

We are delighted that a young Chinese designer made graphics for us and starting today, these are helping to spread the news in the many communities where Green Mapmaking has taken root in Asia and beyond. We invite you to visit GreenMap.org/mobile to download these images, and see all the resources we offer currently to support mobile research and site collection, with more to come!

 

We'll be announcing the next phase of mobile development soon, and using the hashtag #mobiGreenMap to share what's happening around the world. Thank you again for your help in making this happen!

Interns are vital to the energy and effectiveness of the Green Map movement!

Each year, eight to fifteen interns work with us at the New York office. They include students, emerging professionals and international fellows. Producing new maps and media as well as adaptable tools, interns bring us special insight into world regions and critical issues while they gain valuable skills in sustainability, communications and participatory design.

June 25 • 100% Match Today by YouthSpark!

With your help, we can do more to give back to these future leaders. Starting now, at noon on Weds June 25th, we are eligible for a 100% match for all donations on our Internship Microproject (linked below) in support of our green jobs program and Green Map internships.

Yes! Today only, your tax-deductible gift from $10 to $1,000 will double its impact!
