From Michigan, where Green Mapmakers at Monroe County will take part in the Earth Day Expo on 4/14/2018 to Geneva Switzerland where our mapmaking colleagues at Earth Focus will debut their mobile experience, the Sustainabus! to California, where James Fish of the St Louis Green Map project will present a talk on Open Green Maps for an audience of Chinese and American scholars at the 12th International Forum on Ecological Civilization Conference in Claremont, CA - Apr 27&28. Everywhere, Earth Day offers a fresh opportunity to engage new audiences in thinking green and taking action for healthier, more lovable communities
