Our Board joins us in thanking GlobalGiving donors
We recently presented at Geo NYC, a terrific monthly exchange that draws about 100 mapping professionals (find it on Meetup.com, linked below). There, we shared progress toward diversifying the mapping platform options that Green Mapmakers can use to meet their varying goals and skills.
Civic Hall hosted our recent workshop, too, where members pitched in as we describe our process and future quest. We’ll soon be sharing more news on this with you, along with other news about our award-winning icons and engagement toolkit.
"As Green Map's Director, I was delighted to be recognized as a Lower East Side Community Hero, alongside a half dozen local luminaires". Wendy Brawer has worked in the community on cycling, green spaces and renewable energy, and our office has been based on the Lower East Side since inception". Later that week, Wendy was invited to the US State Department to meet Brazilian energy experts – her talk is linked below.
Later in June, our Bike Ready is part of the Bicycle Film Festival and other screenings. See this 4 minute film and use it to spark a conversation with your local bicyclists about organizing for emergencies. Cycling is the antidote to many of today’s challenging conditions!
Watch our social media for updates on more events this summer, including at the World Social Forum (Forum Social Mondial - fsm2016.org) in Montreal in August. And have a great season!
