Baltimore Update

Think Global. Map Local. Hi Tech, low tech, both have their charms.

Low tech works well for outreach. It's fun, immediate, and stimulates interesting conversations. Baltimore Green Map used icon stickers, 4 x 6 cards and a city map to collect new sites to be Green Mapped at Baltimore Office of Sustainability's annual Town Hall on April 18. We learned about several community gardens and orchards that are new to our map and recorded why there is pride in these community accomplishments. This methodology also became the vehicle to learn of several locations where residents see opportunities for major improvements. That points the way to new hyper-local mapping to give voice to their ideas. read more »

Engaging with Green Map Icons

With the Druid Hill Park Passport and mapping workshops, we are taking the Green Map icons off the map and onto new places: as stickers to show that a mapped park has really been explored and on the foreheads of young folks assessing the green features of a local arboretum!

上一次去坦头村还是一年前,感觉会有点不同。我们更加关注一路上的风景,在慢慢行走的过程中关心自己的所见所闻,在比较安静的状态下,观察和思考这一趟看到和听到的一些东西。不知道这一趟是否有开阔孩子们的视野,但对于我来说是增长了一些见识。read more »

Passport to Adventure via the Druid Hill Park Green Map

Passport's Inside Front Cover

In 2010 we made a very popular Green Map for a major park in Baltimore, the Druid Hill Park Green Map. So many people admired it, but never went to the park that I was determined to make an activity-oriented passport to encourage full exploration of the park's resources. Last summer I used the Kickstarter crowd-sourced funding platform to raise the major chunk of money needed. And just 2 weeks ago, on April 19, we launched the Passport at a party that also kicked off Baltimore's 10th Annual Green Week.

The major themes of Nature, History, Exercise and Culture delineate activities in four distinct regions of the park. The icons and location on the map are referenced on each page , and colorful icon sticker "stamps" match each activity. We also emphasized volunteer opportunities and are using the stickers as a way to draw people inside the Conservatory, now celebrating its 125th anniversary. Another way we will know it is successful is if we attract more people to join the park's "Friends of..." advocacy more »

A festival of feedback

The Annual Solstice Festival was celebrated in Broederstroom yesterday.

The Festival is a proven success, attracting hundreds of people to the Magaliesberg Biosphere for the day. Local Musicians and Craft Beer are the items at the top of the bill.

We rolled out a region map, indicated some popuar places to kickstart the process, and then invited the festive crowd to indicate where they love to go and why.

We "discovered" some new places, and confirmed others. It was a wonderful day under the clear winter sky of the Magaliesberg Biosphere.

Westside Story of Green Map Project@Changsha

Westside Story
——Amelie from German

This is our first day of exploration, our first day of project work. Yesterday we had an introduction conference and now our project has officially started.

By reason that our main topic is the protection of the Xiang River, the first step for all of us was to get used with this river our project is about. We can’t promote what we don’t know. So our main goal for this day was to get acquainted with Xiang River and the area around more »
