A greeting from Hu Huizhe

We're pleased to forward this Global Giving Greeting from Hu Huizhe, China's Green Map Hub Leader, from her base at Friends of Nature in Beijing: 绿地图能从个人生活的视角体现出社区的魅力所在。很多生活中的自然、文化、绿色环保 的信息都可以通过绿地图来展现。绿地图可以用灵活互动的方式联结本地生活和全球视野 。Open Green Map的互动标注系统可以为地球村的村民们提供更加多元和有效的参与。 在这里,我们可以跨越地域的局限,展示、讨论和分享各种丰富的生态、社会、文化信息 。同时,Open Gren Map 不仅易于操作,即时更新,还具有超国界的延展性,网络和手 机用户都可以即时参与。让我们一起使用 Open Green Map来给这个世界添加色彩和个性 ,并共同拓展出更有活力和希望的未来! Green Maps highlight local natural, cultural and green living sites to promote personal and community well-being. Transforming local information into global interaction, the Open Green Map social mapping platform spurs healthy participation as it shares diverse public viewpoints. Celebrating sustainability and social resources without barriers, Open Green Maps are always available, easily updated, expanded and explored in online, mobile and custom formats. Enrich today's world and envision a verdant, hopeful future with Open Green Map! 2005年,自然之友成为中国大陆地区第一个在北京开始绿地图活动的组织。到2009年,已 经有20多个各地组织参与到绿地图活动中。这些绿色制图人包括来自学校、社区、环保组 织、研究机构、生态旅游、乡村等各式各样的伙伴。很多地区都创造出富于当地特点,丰 富有趣的绿地图。这些地图既能反映出当地文化的原创魅力,同时也具有国际视野。我们 相信中文版的Open Green Map 可以让更多人了解到在中国的社区所发生的各种环保活动 。同时,Open Green Map 也可以鼓励更多中国公众方便、有效地参与到社区记录和发展 活动中。这个系统可以为所有的中国绿地图制图人提供很好的帮助! Since its beginning in 2005, now there are more than 20 active Green Map teams all over China. Friends of Nature is the first authorized organization to outreach for and create Green Maps in Beijing. Various groups including student groups, local communities, academic researchers, eco-tourism and village communities have participated in Green Mapping in different forms in China. We have also created quite a few unique and fresh maps featuring the local cultural essence while reflecting a global vision. We believe that a Chinese interface of Open Green Map will let more people understand how Chinese Green Mapmakers work on sustainable development and environment protection. In the meanwhile, Open Green Map also provide an efficient, feasible, and interesting interactive platform for more public participation from China. It will be a great support for all Green Mapmakers.
