About this Mapmaker

Living City, a grassroots organization working for community-led planning and specifically transportation for equality, recycling for a better life, heritage so we know where we came from and can therefore better define where we want to go.

Statement of Purpose

Mapping is a powerful tool for visualizing where we as communities are located and where we want to go. Because we were born from a fight against an urban highway concession that would have destroyed some of Santiago’s oldest communities, we are particularly concerned with sustainable development. Above all, we are deeply engaged in exploring how tools such as building our own organizations, empowered citizens’ groups elsewhere in the city, sustainable transportation and other elements can ensure our future is based soundly on lessons from the present and past.

Local Language Overview

Tod@s nos quejamos de nuestro barrio y nuestra ciudad – la contaminación del aire, el ruido, la falta de espacios verdes para que conversen los mayores, jueguen los niños, descansemos y nos recreemos tod@s, con respeto y tolerancia hacia la diversidad que compone nuestra sociedad. Para mejorarla, debemos potenciar lo bueno, cuidarlo, y construir – con todas nuestras voluntades, ganas y creatividad – lo que nos hace falta, para una ciudad más equitativa, más verde, más amable y segura. Cuando mapeamos nuestro espacio vital, estamos también mapeando nuestros deseos, sueños, compromisos. Por esto, un mapa verde como este es – en tus manos, estimada amiga, querido amigo -- una potente herramienta de cambio.
