Experiencing the green side of the city
Although we have retired our Chinese project fundraiser on GlobalGiving, for the very first time, we are using this platform for our local Green Map NYC project. We're doing lots of important, inclusive with our own local community.
We invite you to check out our profile, including the documentation to find out about our climate projects and how this will impact Green Maps being made around the world, including in China, Taiwan and in Chinese-speaking communities all over. Thank you for your attention, and we hope, your contribution!
Right now, we are competing for the most unique donors in GlobalGiving Climate Campaign. You can help us win with as little as $10 (€5 or £5). Please donate now and give this project greater visibility.
9AM ET on Earth Day, Monday April 22 WOW! 50% match, while funds last.
Your donations can help us win visibility until Monday April 29. There's a nice bonus for recurring gifts too. Thank you!
Our thanks to you for all your support over the years supporting the "Greening of China with Green Maps". There are now more than 20 interactive Open Green Maps made by Chinese speaking people, and dozens of printed Green Maps plus workshop editions in use!
When we review the many reports we have shared over the last decade, it’s wonderful to see how many projects were accomplished - take a look! Beginning way back in November 2008, there are many terrific stories and photos - you have also helped us create videos, maps and tools in Chinese in NYC - the reports have links to all!
We are now closing this project to new donations, but invite you to come to our global page on Global Giving - where you can continue to pitch in toward our work around the world. We also invite you to get on our own mailing list at GreenMap.org/home
Thank you, once again for all you have done for local Green Mapmakers and for our team in New York!

Green Map System took part in NYC's Earth Day DOT Car-free Celebration on April 21 - we shared animated GIFS, which you can see at giphy.com/GreenMap ! Give them a try in your own social media, emails, website etc and help promote this movement and your own postitive actions. We were glad that JingJing He, a young Green Mapmaker studying in New York from Anhui China could pitch in.
We are big fans of Jane Jacobs and her work to humanize cities is celebrated in many countries this weekend with Jane's Walks led by local citizens. Our May 6 Jane’s Walk doubles as a Lower East Side History Month walking tour - join us for Past. Present. Future of the LES. All are welcome at this free event. Meet us at 11:00 am for a 2 hour walk that starts and ends at the Stanton Building. Details here.
Our director is also taking part in Open Engage 2018 at the Queens Museum. We had a great time there in 2014, and look forward to being part of a panel on Sunday, May 13. A few days later, Wendy is the commencement keynote speaker at Parsons School of Design Strategies, then she heads to Europe to host events and talks with Green Mapmakers in Denmark, Sweden, Romania, Switzerland and Finland!
In March, Green Map Jayapura hosted a beach clean up in Papua Indonesia! Our board member, Barent Roth is teaching 3-D Printing techniques to Parsons students and testing out some new game and marker concepts with us. In April, we hosted Tokyo Green Mapmaker Masahiro Horiuchi, who presented his Share Hub and Share Map at MORUS NYC. We'll soon be posting a better video on Facebook.com/GreenMap, a great spot to follow our most recent actions.
To date in 2018, groups from the US, Colombia, UK and Guineau have joined us a new Green Mapmaking projects. On behalf of the ever-growing Green Map network, Thank You! Have a meaningful spring, wherever you live.
