Climate on our Mind

think global, map local!

With extreme flooding, record-breaking hurricanes, and too many places under threat, climate action remains our gravest challenge. How can we, together, best face this existential crisis?

Let's do more for our home planet. Join us at three events listed below. 

At Green Map, we have worked to reduce climate impacts at the community level since Day One, providing a direct means to communicate local options for sustainable living and towards a healthier, more just and lovable city.  As we give people the tools needed to conduct local eco-assessments, we equip them to make real change, shifting perspectives about community assets and liabilities and contributing to positive, cross-cutting actions with across the board benefits. 

Climate-themed Green Maps have been made in Thailand, South Korea, Spain and other places, as presented at the Crisismappers conference.
In addition, we have placed climate action on many NYC Green Maps and encouraged more engagement through events, media and consulting. Indeed, every Green Map we've made has included energy efficiency and renewables!

Our 2006 Powerful Green Map was the first with an in-depth climate perspective, followed by interactive editions that help NYC reduce impacts through waste minimization and bicycling.

This work grows in meaning each year as Green Map contributes to the creation of green sites in addition to mapping them. Our NYC collaborations include: a community climate action lab, a net zero building, community green infrastructure, solar, preparedness and regeneration projects.

Please join us at the three climate-related events noted below, and help us make meaningful changes, today and every day, in support of a truly regenerative culture!
It's a great time to give today. Put a healthy, sustainable future on the map.
