Now available on our new user-friendly Green Map Platform: a shared set of Local Food Icons! Key to engaging low-income and frontline communities in contributing to secure, healthy, informed communities, the locally-led process brings people together to visualize assets and issues while promoting local farmers markets, food banks, community gardens, enterprises and education. Help us expand training and tools to transform more underserved communities, rural and urban, through food mapping.
Green Map tools have been used in 65 countries. Recently, our team determined we must do more to engage communities impacted by climate and social disparities. Our mapping platform was designed to spur collaboration and empower those new to technology, so Mapmakers gain agency and skills to make new visions of home that are pertinent and inspiring. Charting local food opens pathways to resilience, thriving green careers and recognition of the local movement for food security and wellbeing.
Food is the gateway: seeing the breadth of activity nearby is valuable for rural and frontline communities alike. Your donation will extend our reach and support free training, resources and videos in a dozen under-represented communities in 2024. Help build skills, networks and knowledge to directly counter climate change and enable a wider variety of community-building & sustainability initiatives. Moving soon to GreenMap.org, the first 100 Green Maps are already on this free to use Platform.
Your donation does even more as many Green Mapmakers use their new skills as springboards to green jobs and careers. Open to all, we expect far more than a dozen new projects to benefit from your donation. Mapping is fundamental and yields a baseline for action. Your support is especially valuable in these uncertain times, as our Platform extends best mapping practices, organizing and communications skills via our newly created training resources to empower more places, locally and globally.

Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Green Maps for a more sustainable future!. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
