Mapping our Common Ground v3! Launching the eBook
Green Map’s director and local project leaders had an especially good series of meetings in May and June in five European countries. A highlight was the launching of Mapping Our Common Ground’s third edition, and the first to be released as an eBook - get your copy of this guide free at http://bit.ly/MCG18-pdf. Launched in two places at once, find out more about the story behind this handy resource - our thanks to Maeve Lydon, Ken Josephson, Crystal Tremblay and John Lutz in Victoria BC and Budapest, and to Ciprian and Alexandra Samolia and colleagues in Bistrita Romania.
A total of nine meetings with municipalities, NGOs, an embassy and UN staff were part of the trip’s mix of activities. The United Nations SDGs (2030 Global Goals) played a part in many of these meetings, as we have now charted our icons in relation to these 17 goals, added them to our new guide, and begun exploring how our network has been using them ‘on the ground’.
This activity is featured in the slideshow at http://bit.ly/GMS-SDG18. This presentation will continue to evolve as we are taking part in some of the related events alongside the United Nations' High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in July in New York.
In the heat of summer, we are taking a couple weeks off from hosting public events, but looking ahead to our Climate Week special event in September, stay tuned! and stay cool!
Earth Focus Sustainabus will launch soon in Geneva
