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!

Each participant provided fresh inspiration. Helmut Wolman and the Ideenwerkstatt Bildungsagenten are planning the Map of Tomorrow

Our Director also presented at the Living Knowledge Network conference in Copenhagen, which focuses on community engaged research. A highlight was touring Nature Classrooms with Anja Liebermann of the City of Copenhagen.

Green Map System has roots in Copenhagen. It's where the local NYC Green Map project blossomed into a global movement  during the United Nations Social Summit in 1995. It was exciting to strategize with so many great people making this an eco-region!
