Summer in the City with Green Map!

Front Page News! 

Special thanks to all who contributed to our NYC Climate Action project this Spring, which is creating new models for the global movement as we serve our local community.

Yes, NYC has declared a Climate Emergency! We took part and provided testimony in the lead up to the June 26th resolution by NYC City Council. Green Map has been ‘at the table’ several times this season as important policy changes are discussed and enacted.

The first NYC Green Map funded by you and LES Ready is online at bit.ly/coolLES! Refresh LES is all about saving energy while keeping cool. We mapped all kinds of places to be comfortable and relaxed while the summer sun is baking the city. Download it today or request free print copies. In keeping with our new open source policy, we made the file available for making your own version of this highly localized map. This project was inspired by Green Map Tokyo’s original Cool Share project. We hope there are abundant social benefits from being cool together, as well as cleaner air and reduced Urban Heat Island effect.

Cape Town Green Map: Celebrating 10 years of great work!

Way back in 2009, Cape Town’s first Green Map rolled off the presses. Now the 9th edition is being readied for release and everyone is celebrating ! This terrific team has continued their news service too, and you can catch up at capetowngreenmap.co.za. They also played an important role in galvanizing the public's involvement in the city’s 2018 water crisis and can now report that drinking water reserves are 50% replenished. 

June 5, World Environment Day, also marked the 10th year of Open Green Map! As noted in our recent newsletter, work continues on the new version of this social mapping platform, which will be presented at FOSS4G, the open source mapping conference in August. Our thanks to the amazing team of Ciprian Samoila and Bogdan Szabo for this work-in-progress!

We're wishing you the best for the season, and donors, yes! Good news: Global Giving has set July 18th as a great day to have your donation matched! Thank you for your support and all you do for a healthy environment and climate.
