Story created by Green Map System on November 3, 2017
The United Nations’ work on sustainable development has been an inspiration to us since Day 1. Now, the UN has a new way of clearly setting out goals. We applaud the SDG breakthrough!
For further alignment, we matched our award-winning icons to these 17 Global Goals for sustainable development, working with the Green Mapmakers at Green Swiss.

Visit bit.ly/GMS-SDG18: Additional concepts are taking shape here, including social media integration, AR, and communication systems (overview PDF).
During the 2019 United Nations Climate Action Summit, we hosted an event linking our NYC community's work to the SDGs - see A Walk in the Park - SDGs in the Real World.
YES! The SDGs are an icon set on our new mapping platform. Now you can use OGM2 to map the signs of progress toward the sustainable development goals in your town!
In June 2021, SDGs + Green Map Icons was presented at Living Knowledge 9 by Green Mapmakers Fumiyo Murayama (Japan) and Hannah Clinch (Scotland) along with Wendy Brawer (NYC + Green Map's director).
