How Green Maps Impact Tororo Uganda

Some of the Impacts of the Tororo Green Map project

We're delighted to post this blog about project impacts by Odulla Joseph in #Tororo #Uganda. Find the project's profile here

The first Green Map on the African continent was created by the Tororo Green Mapmaking team. The first edition of this map was made in 1999, with the second Tororo Green Map following in 2004. I am Odulla Joseph, a secondary school geography teacher, and as the project leader, I worked very hard creating the two editions.

These two Green Maps have had a significant positive impact on the sustainability of Tororo, making it more friendly and a better place to live. Adults and children participated in green site identification, and everyone learned about the friendly and unfriendly sites we have in Tororo. The process helped children discover types of environmentally friendly green sites that are found in other urban areas around the world, but were missing in Tororo. This helped cultivate an environmental mind and attitude among the children, encouraging them to create more friendly green sites and initiate activities such as planting special trees in their homes, municipal gardens and along the sides of the roads. read more »

UM Students 2014

We had special guests visiting our East Village office this week, coming all the way from Michigan to help develop a strong concept for the new version of GreenMap.org. Andrew from Taiwan, Nehal from India, Anna from Philadelphia and Vincent from China are graduate students at the University of Michigan School of Information in Ann Arbor. They chose to work with Green Map System for a week, redefining the structure of our website and brainstorming ways to improve user experience.

News from Germany

Bernice and Aruna

In recent years, more and more federal sustainability policies and initiatives are spreading throughout Germany, with the goals of reducing greenhouse gas emission by 40% by 2020 and increasing the share of renewable energy sources consumption by 60% by 2050. In the meantime, a quarter of the energy consumed in Germany is produced by renewable energy sources. This is a great setting for the several ongoing mapmaking projects taking place in Germany at the moment. Green Maps are now live in Berlin, Hamburg and Darmstadt, engaging communities and tourists in continuous efforts to promote greener and healthier ways of living. read more »

La versión española más adelante

Mapa Verde Red, the Green Map network in Cuba, is one of the more dynamic and elaborate ongoing Green Mapmaking projects. Based at Centro Felix Varela in Havana, the Cuban Green Map team has been incredibly prolific in creating tools, maps, videos, guides and educational frameworks. Led by biologist Liana Bidart Cisneros, a great group coordinates all aspects, including María Luisa Ventosa Zenea, Dely Rodríguez Velázquez, Asunción Capote Fernández, Gustavo Blanco Vale and Victoria Castillo Garrido.

In 2013, the 15th anniversary of Mapa Verde Red was celebrated with the publication of Mapa Verde en el contexto Cubano. Published by the Centro Felix Varela, this book is a thorough overview of the processes and methodology underlying the practice of Green Mapmaking as a means for sustainable community development. Download the book below! This anniversary was also marked by the Cuban national television station with a short film showing the network’s impact on sustainability in rural and urban communities in 12 of Cuba's 14 provinces.

New 'Green by Design' Icon!

Green by Design

Globally recognized Green Map Icons connect all the maps and mapmakers together. Three versions of this award-winning globally designed symbol set have been released over the years, each one complete with multilingual posters and related resources for printed and interactive Green Map. Find them at GreenMap.org/icons.

The design process has been inclusive and exciting but quite time-consuming. This year, we are piloting a new process, and have begun adding new icons, one by one, to the set.

Our first new icon, Green by Design, originated in Cape Town South Africa, where the terrific Green Map project has been part of the World Design Capital 2014 bid and project. Green Mapmakers Arne Purves and Philip Todres have contributed the new symbol as well as posted a blog introducing the World Design Capital program. See the new icon on the interactive Open Green Map there and follow at #WDC2014!read more »
