Articles & Media on Green Map System

Since each Green Map is a PR service for the hometown environment, reaching new audiences is of core importance. Positive attention from the global media has benefited the Green Map movement in many countries, helping to expand the number of community-led Green Map projects as well as public demand for the completed maps!

We appreciate the thoughtful work of the journalists linked to this page, as their efforts have contributed to healthier, greener communities around the world as they celebrated the successes of Green Mapmaking. Articles are listed here, and press quotes and other resources in the News section provide more background on our diverse activities.

Also, the Open Green Map, our newest interactive mapmaking tool is getting a lot of attention. Read some testimonials here.
