A Green Map Update!
View this email in your browser

Wonderful, Wonderful...

Fresh from the Copenhagen Region

It's quite wonderful to visit sites on the Green Map like this energy- efficient new residential area in Malmö's Western Harbor

In April, 35 Green Mapmakers & prospective project leaders got together in Malmö Sweden. Hosted by our long-time partners at the City, their regional Nature Classroom network, Oresundklassrummet, and our Canadian partners at the Common Ground Network at University of Victoria, this  international ‘collaboratory’ included a great cross-sector mix of participants. We started with a study tour of Malmo’s outstanding urban planning projects at the Western Harbor and Rosengard, followed by a full day of exchange and co-development of new strategies, applications and tools for community-engaged Green Mapmaking.

Exciting outcomes include three new Green Maps established within a week, a new video (still in production), the seeds of a new mapping platform, university-community partnerships, and more!read more »

NYC Ranger Conservation Corps' Mapmaking

When the first Green Map of NYC was made back in 1992, people were surprised to see the abundance of nature in the city. We realized the importance of promoting our wealth of parks, beaches and other natural places as a way to promote ‘staycations’, support engagement, protect the wilderness, reduce sprawl and improve quality of life, across the board.

That’s why we are especially excited to share the first Green Map made by the Manhattan Ranger Conservation Corps! Created with a cool after-school program run by the Urban Park Rangers of NYC Parks, you can check out their map at OpenGreenMap.org/greenmap/conservationcorps. It provides an enticing look at the lovely places that host classes, walks and workshops. Join the Urban Park Rangers on an upcoming program – there’s a calendar full of terrific events on the NYC Parks website - it’s quite remarkable!

UN 2030 SDGs

We have been developing a unique, community-based approach to the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Popularly known as the SDGs, and recognized with the rainbow ring that signifies the 17 priorities, you can review our project here: bit.ly/SDGGM.

As our network expands the uses of the SDGs, we are adding them to a Slideshow. With both actual and aspirational projects, we hope these applications will inspire you.

Download the poster that compares Green Map Icons to the SDGs in English and French. Soon, this chart will be available in Chinese! Want to pitch in on another language or develop an experience or application with us? We look forward to hearing from you!

TED Talk!

2017 began in an exciting way - our founding director and Green Map were selected for a TED Residency. Now after a wonderful stint working at TED being connected with new ideas, new media and great people, we are delighted to present Wendy’s TED Talk.

This talk shares the future of Green Map, which has gone ‘open source’ to encourage fresh new kinds of mapping and projects that advance our mission of inclusive participation in sustainable, resilient community development. We’re excited to see what this new approach (with a Creative Commons 4.0 license that invites users to freely use the Green Map Icons on non-commercial projects of any kind, adapt and share them provided that you give credit to Green Map System (yes, we are happy to discuss commercial uses, too!). More on this in our soon to launch new website! read more »
