Introduction
Green Map of the most famous area in Geneva
About this Map

The United Nations' area in Geneva is a specific neighbourhood as thousands of people from almost every country in the world, work there but they are not very well integrated in the local community.
This Green map project, implmented with the association Usine 21, aims to better explain the role of the International organisations to local residents and show what they do for local sustainable developement.
In the other side, the ojective is also to show International employees the local actions toward sustainability that they could use in their daily life.
In this context, we met each International Organisation to discover their local sustainable actions (especially in their building management and for their employees' mobility). We have set up workshops with a class from a local school, interviewed local associations and firms. We've met also local authorities and took advice from the Geneva Environment Network.
A first version of the paper map has been exhibited during the sustainable festival in June in order to collect comments from local residents.
Currently, we check information given by all of these stakeholders, contact few other organisations we missed, and validate the datas from a diplomatic point of view with the Geneva authorities.
