Too many people feel bewildered by ecological decline and climate change's complexities because they lack awareness of local resources and connections to make meaningful change. To encourage daily actions that support vibrant economies and thriving communities, our participatory tools and mapping technologies help local project leaders bring everyday solutions to light. As a result, across the US and worldwide, award-winning Green Maps highlight local places, pathways, people and resources.
An antidote to despair and apathy, Green Map gives people a new perspective on their own hometown's assets and challenges. Guiding the way to better choices, each edition - whether made by city officials, nonprofits, youth or everyday citizens - is a powerful platform for social change. With the launch of our new website and open toolkit in spring 2017, this expanding movement will build capacity, skills and collaboration for a more resilient, healthy, democratic and economically sound world.
Moving from copyright to 'copy-left', we will combine our efforts with diverse 'smart cities' programs, mapping technologies, media, educators and others. Directly countering climate change, your support will accelerate our ability to build skills, networks and resources, enabling local Green Map teams to undertake a wider variety of community-building and sustainability initiatives. This will extend our impacts, yielding powerful new print & interactive Green Maps that help millions of people.
