With so much at stake and so much opportunity, your donations will support the creation of printed, interactive and mural Green Maps in communities across China. Interpreted in Chinese, our award-winning social mapping platform, icons, and adaptable resources engage professional, youth and grassroots leaders in mapping the way to a more sustainable future.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Lack of resources and information prevents people from making better everyday choices, protecting biodiversity and addressing issues together. GreenMap.org already has a large Chinese audience. 40 diverse cities have Green Map projects underway. Supporting access to the Open Green Map and other resources in Chinese lowers technical and financial barriers to participation. Let's help them instantly chart green sites, nature, social and cultural resources thus guiding and inviting all to go green!
How will this project solve this problem?
GlobalGiving donors have supported the creation of a Chinese interface that is strengthening our emerging network and giving each participating community a healthier future. It's now generating more demand! People are yearning to get involved and Green Mapmaking can fulfill that need, if we can provide the tools, trainings and universal icons to all. Your support helps us create features and tutorials to our online resources and strategically mentor mapmakers as their projects develop.
Potential Long Term Impact
At this critical time, our efforts to promote and localize the budding sustainability movement in China will bring people of all ages together to discover, share and care for their communities, directly countering pressing environmental challenges.
