Summer News from Green Map

By Wendy Brawer | Director

Our new desk in rural Scotland!
Our new desk in rural Scotland!

Hello Green Map Friends!

Along with you, we’re worried about the state of our beautiful world. However, more people are putting their climate anxiety into energizing local Green Map projects every day. Thanks to you, we can provide advanced resources designed for spurring engagement without cost, to all.

This season, we added a rural Green Map desk in Scotland! While our New York based team isn’t actually there to use it, the desk is at the ‘community interest company’ owned by Ms. Clinch of the Green Map Platform team. She adds, ““The POP shop is a small co-work space in a rural west coast town. It can be hard to sustain a space like this, so this unique collaboration with Green Map System makes a real difference to us. We’ll be able to increase our connection to other communities creating Green Maps and test out new ways of working to support sustainable community development.” 

We’re holding an open office hour jointly in August - bring your questions and join Hannah and Wendy online at this link on Wednesday, August 211:00am – 12:00pm ET (4 PM in the UK (every time zone). We welcome everyone, from newbies to seasoned mapmakers. And if you are nearby, drop in to see our desk in Dunoon! 

We’re happy to report that our local food icon development process is nearing its conclusion, with last comments being made in July. You can preview the set and add comments at  GreenMap.org/localfood! The draft set is already in use, and these projects helped inform our recent food security discussion. What’s next? Social service icons that take their cue from the UN SDGs and localize these resources! 

Upcoming residencies for Green Map:

  • Upstate NY Residency in mid-August at Manitoga, the Russel Wright Design Center and beautiful 75 acres of Woodland Gardens in the Hudson Valley, where a new Green Map may get started.

  • On Governors Island at the Swale House - this Residency has a public open day on Saturday October 14th, from 11 - 5, where the draft Social Icons should be on view.

More NYC News: excitingly, our City Councilmember Marte appointed Green Map's Director as the newest board member at the Trust for Governors Island! The island is one of Wendy's favorite places in the city, and with its focus on climate, culture and community, it's truly an honor to be involved. Find more recent NYC news is here, and background on the images below.

Our best to you for a sustainable and healthy season, and our thanks, as always, for your support!
