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!

Solution

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.

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.
