Challenge

With hundreds of miles of coastline and eight million residents, NYC is particularly vulnerable. Climate change is destined to reshape NYC's future, and by extension, all cities impacted by 'manhattanization'. In 2012, we observed social resilient communities recovering faster from superstorm Sandy. Costing NYC $19 billion, the stresses Sandy revealed accelerated our mission. Today we're building knowledge, networks and skills with a diversity of maps, community projects, media and more.

Solution

Edison said, "we can't solve problems with the same kind of thinking we used when we created them". We are experienced and understand how to engage and empower people with capacities that support local sustainability and regenerative culture. Moreover, Green Map System is now open source and is partnering creatively to engage urban dwellers in building a climate-smart future. NYC, our home community, has always been our testing ground for new ideas that often become models for other communities.

Long-Term Impact

Our track record includes sparking 1,000 mapping projects in 65 countries by sharing award-winning icons, adaptable framework and platform. In partnership, we are diversifying - help us #AnimateChange as we develop a 'green culture' climate action lab plan, release a Cool Green Map to promote bottom-up energy savings, pilot a 'Community Canopy' of street trees, shine a light on the UN 2030 Goals (SDGs) and more, like Bike Ready, our how-to video that prepares cyclists for climate disruptions.
