Getting Ready with Green Map!
Bike Ready - a climate-smart disruption solution
Be safe this Hurricane Season - be ready, too!
As you may know, generating action to respond to climate change is among the many things Green Map System does. Now, nearly four years since Superstorm Sandy disrupted our office for several days, we worked with local filmmakers to create:
Framing how New York bicyclists responded in the aftermath of a disaster, this film is becoming a springboard for local preparedness. We hope you will take time to view this 4-minute film, and use the accompanying Guide so you can lead a #BikeReady project in your community too. This project is licensed under a 'copy left' Creative Commons license so you can adapt it as needed. Share it with bike groups, emergency planners and your municipality.
To support solutionary responses that reduce risks in communities worldwide, we created Chinese (Mandarin), Spanish and Japanese editions. All are on the same webpage as the English original, along with other resources to build resiliency, at GreenMap.org/bikeready. This video debuted at the New York Bicycle Film Festival, and has been shown in diverse community and university settings. It was created with support of our neighborhood’s ‘long term recovery group’, LES Ready.
Cycle daily for climate health, and in the spirit of mutual aid, get ready with Bike Ready!
