Johannesburg - the City of Gold - is hoping to give itself a green spring cleaning this week as it launches its very own city wide Green Map for the first time. Like all Green Maps it features the world renowned icons that are associated with the global Green Map project and is visually similar to the Cape Town Green Map so as to keep a consistent style going across the country.
Content wise, the Joburg Green Map is focused on issues which affect the city and has a comprehensive listing of sites associated specifically with recycling, parks and fresh food. It also has its own community of green events and bloggers which are contributing fresh thinking to the topic of the environment in the city.
Whilst at this stage the project remains at the website and social media levels, there are plans to expand its reach into the 'traditional' printed map in the near future.
Reaction to the map has already been very positive with the facebook page rapidly heading towards the 100 mark in only a few days. The Joburg Green Map team are very excited by the start of the project and are looking forward to helping make an impact on the lives of the citizens of Joburg with quality environmental information.
