Green Map in China - 2010's been a great year!

Thanks to the support of Global Giving donors like you, we've had another year of positive communications and activities in China for sustainable community development through mapmaking in 2010.

This year, new projects in Hangzhou, Xiamen-Wecl, Qujing City, Shanxi, Dongtai, Jiangxi and Shanghai are making a real difference in their communities. This is also the first year of WWF China Green Map projects, and 30 universities took part in charting fresh water and wetlands - these Green Maps were shown at EXPO and are now touring (a link below describes Nanjing's exhibit). Find more about this in progress reports added earlier in 2010. 

University students are important stakeholders. We are delighted that the Fresh EPA group in Guangzhou has added several blog posts about the work they undertook this year to our website (see links below, or click News on GreenMap.org/home anytime). Now helping to spread Green Mapmaking to other universities and NGOs in the region, this group has published a wonderfully detailed Green Map of the Higher Education Mega Center, completed several community maps and developed their own workshops and hand-on activities.

We look forward to continuing to work with these students and many others across China in the year to come. To support this effort more fully, we are expecting to increase our team with a native speaker of Chinese this winter. We are hoping some of our latest resources - possibly including the Green Map iPhone App (which has new data collecting features, as seen at GreenMap.org/app) can become more available for the many kinds of smartphones being used by Chinese people.  Your help will help us do more to support on-the-ground community building, skill sharing, communicating clearly about sustainability's complexities and strengthening networks in China.

Thank you and our best wishes for a healthy and green 2011!
