This Match Day is so important. We hope you can contribute and let your friends know how our organization builds capacity for the participatory development of smarter, healthier and greener communities.
Maps are a powerful form of media. Now in 65 countries, local Green Mapmaking teams are using our adaptable tools and technologies to share insights about green living and their home’s unique natural and cultural environment. Your contributions will help our award-winning organization work smarter and support more communities, collaborations and tools. A few examples:
- Japan, where participatory mapmaking is bridging the need to reduce energy usage and regenerate community spirit at a time of crisis with projects including Cool Share, co-created by Masahiro Horiuchi of Tokyo Green Map,
- Cape Town South Africa where the fourth printed Green Map edition in three years is bridging economic and environmental initiatives,
- New Jersey, where several towns are bridging gaps in crucial information with interactive Open Green Maps, exchanging ideas and outcomes).
