Summary

Motivating action in 65 countries, Green Map System is fueled by a remarkably diverse movement of local mapmakers who research, chart and promote their communities' ecological, cultural and sustainable living resources. Now, as the urgency of climate change grows, Green Map has become an 'open source' organization and is building a new open mapping platform to help ensure that even more cities, towns and partnerships benefit from our icons, tools and capacity-building engagement resources.

Challenge

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.

Solution

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.

Long-Term Impact

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.
