Tokyo Cycling Green Map wins Modal Shift Prize!

See English below Japanese.





Congratulations to Masahiro Horiuchi and Tokyo Cycling Green Mapmakers!

Japan's Ministry of Environment held a ‘Stop Climate Change’ contest. “Tokyo Cycling Green Map” was the only project by a non-profit organization among the winners. Following a presentation of 47 projects primarily by local governments or other type of corporations that represent each prefecture, this Green Map won the Tokyo Grand Prix.

This is the third major prize for this team!
