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. We launched our new website in late 2018. Its stories and open toolkit provide the means to build capacity, skills and collaboration for a more resilient, healthy, just, democratic and economically sound world.
With your support, our new open mapping platform will soon replace our 10-year old version, transferring over 500 interactive Green Maps already made in 40 countries. As we partner with conservation and 'smart cities' programs, mapping technologies, media, educators and others, we are extending our impacts. Directly countering climate change, you will accelerate our ability to build skills, networks and resources and to enable a wider variety of community-building and sustainability initiatives.
