Climate Action with Green Map

Featuring our climate actions, including Climate Week NYC events, media and history! You are invited to explore the Lower East Side, on a shared bike with us during 2017's Climate Week bicycling tour of renewables and bio-design. You can pitch in on development of the Stanton Building as a community climate action center, too. Curious about our most recent 'from mapping to making green places' climate actions? Download our director's 2017 overview here.

Our 2016 creative climate action is framed by a short video that helps cyclists get organized to pitch in during emergencies. Watch it at GreenMap.org/bikeready in English, Spanish, Chinese and Japanese, thanks to the support of filmmaker Peter Shapiro and LES Ready.

Follow us on Twitter for updates at @GreenMap and explore how we put Climate and Energy on the map everyday - you can do it too!
Register at GreenMap.org/join and use Green Mapmaking to help promote climate awareness and action where you live.

Interested in some of our climate mapping? This 2014 slideshow traces 10 years of maps, experiences and outcomes, and this blog shares the story of our work for climate health (such as our award-winning Tour video, our interactive energy and climate map), too.

Join our Climate Week 2017 event, and the for Sandy's fifth anniversary in partnership with The New School on October 26, 2017!
