At Green Map, our work to engage people at the local level is more important than ever!

• 21 new Green Map projects were started around the world this year. From Jayapura Indonesia to Gainesville Florida to Seville Spain, these projects are tackling greater complexities and bringing more people to the table, in support of healthy, resilient communities in 65 countries. Follow the ever-growing list at GreenMap.org/home.

• The SDGs are a new United Nations framework. These 17 Sustainable Development Goals) are matched with Green Map Icons at http://bit.ly/SDGGM.

• In New York in 2017, our director’s TED Residency was a great experience!  Watch Wendy’s TED Talk, and read about her 14 week experience in our blog at bit.ly/TEDgm17.

• We took part in a thoughtful conference on ecosystem services in Oaxaca Mexico this fall, along with youth stewardship project leaders from Irapuato- enjoy our joint report.  Green Map joined the Intermapping and explored the circular economy in Florence, in spring, too.  

• Locally, our talks, walks and community partnerships (like this fall's Climate Week, New School and Grassroots Alliance events) connected us with new audiences. Green Map is part of a neighborhood effort to restore a park building and contributes to an 'infrastructure reuse' project in Queens, as well. 

• Our open trajectory has more coming up:

    New Stories-based open website
    Mapping our Common Ground, book, third edition 
    Creation of Green Map Icons as Icons as digital stickers (SDG-linked) 
    Check out our summer intern's terrific “Learning Tech for Sustainability” and see how Esri’s Story Map platform complements Green Mapmaking  

• Awards in 2017 include: 
       The (En)Rich List, Honorable Mention, Post Growth Institute
        NYC Service Certificate (see WendyBrawer.com/awards)

Green Mapmaking is a concrete action that promotes local agency, addresses climate and political fears, and helps build a better future. Thank you for your support!

We invite you to contact us anytime with your ideas to help shine a sustainable light on all of the 982 communities that we serve. Our best wishes for 2018!
