A great many caring people have influenced this project over the years. They
include pioneering Mapmakers, workshop participants, educators making maps with
their students, the global eco design network, friends, family and media who
have assisted in our outreach effort. Thanks to all, we have been growing GMS
with little funding and a lot of love, propelled by collaborative action and
global involvement. At each stage of GMS's development, key people have provided
inspiration, great ideas and their helpful hands.
This brings us to the 2006-2007 development of the Green Map Greenhouse and
our re-launched website, completely refreshed in May 2007.
