To our supporters via Global Giving:
We think of you often! Your help means we can work with hundreds of local Green Map teams who work very hard on creating Green Maps that motivate positive change in communities of all scales, across the US and beyond. The presentation linked below tells more of the story – feel free to share it with friends or use it to ignite a new Green Map in your hometown.
You have supported fundamental improvements in our mapping platform which now has 40 countries using it!
Open Green Maps offer a very low cost, highly participative way to share information about each community’s resources for sustainable and resilient living. In 2013, we have been upgrading the underlying infrastructure (including Google Map #3), with improvements to the green site information windows now nearly complete. Excitingly, you are helping us develop a new mobile site collection app – more news about this and 2014 goals soon!
You have supported mapmaker surveys that led to more social media integration too. We produced a guide to help our network promote local, regional and global efforts on free media to reach new audiences. It's one of the newest in our online Tool Center, where all of us can share engagement, criteria setting, outreach and education resources.
With your help we can respond directly to the needs articulated by this diverse network, and work together for a better world.
Thank you again and enjoy the slideshow!
Our best wishes to you.
