Hola LES! Green Mapmaking workshop, June 24, 2015
Green Map has ‘moved the mountain’. Yes, after nine years of great progress and global accumulation, we have moved two blocks east. Overlooking a community garden and a lively urban streetscape in the East Village, our new space brings us closer to our diverse community and local sustainability efforts. Our new address is 292 East Third St, #1A. We’ll be ready for visitors soon, and a fresh flock of summer interns is starting this week.
Our season is starting off with an update of our popular book, Mapping our Common Ground (linked below). It focuses on community mapping and grassroots sustainability. Created with Green Mapmakers in Cuba, Brazil, the US and Canada, this update is led by the great team at University of Victoria, and supported by Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Our recent workshop, pictured above, builds on this project!
We’re also developing our research archive, the new road map and 20th anniversary activities designed by university student teams this spring, and shifting our mapping platform. Our board has expanded, too, adding Meredith Gray of the Coop School, Lela Prashad of NiJel, and Chelsea Wittman of Google. Our appreciation to outgoing board members Lara Penin and Randy Meech, as well as to you! We can’t do this work to benefit people in so many places without your help!
