Taking part in NYC's People Planet streetfair
This year, the Green Map Advisory group has been meeting via email and Skype. It's been exciting to hear more about local development - these communications also contribute much to our ongoing planning. Together we are identifying priorities that will accelerate our work together. We have an exciting possibility to meet, to be announced as it's confirmed. Thanks to Janet Felsten of Baltimore Green Map and Philip Todres of Cape Town Green Map for stepping it up!
In New York, with the help of Jake Greenberg, our summer intern from Brandeis U, we have taken part in various fairs and public events this season. It's amazing how many people we encounter have heard of and used Green Maps! We take a break during the hottest weeks, and will be announcing our Autumn events soon on GreenMapNYC.org, starting with Climate Week in September.
Lots of great work underway in Wales, where Sustainable Swansea has printed their latest edition. It's their 6th printed Green Map and there's another 9 that are interactive Open Green Maps - terrific work! Follow them on Twitter for more news.
Our director's TED Residency was completed, shortly after all 23 participants gave their talks, live on the big red dot! It was a great experience, and now, everyone wants to know when the talks will be online. It takes months to process them all, of course, we will let you know. Residents can continue to use the TED office and take part in welcoming the next round of residents in the fall!
Wishing you a wonderful summer!
