Story created by Green Map System on November 23, 2018
This blog was created by Green Mapmaker Juna Papagorji, who is now at University of Florida, Department of Urban and Regional Planning.
Students of the school "Deshmoret e Lirise" prepared the first Green Map for Tirana, the capital of Albania. They created a Green Map showing the present locations of green resources, and a Future Green Map capturing their proposal for new green resources. They composed the maps using paper and crayons, and afterwards used ArcGIS Explorer to transfer those maps into a Geographic Information System. At the end, they wrote a letter to the Mayor of Tirana, asking for their work to be published on the web site of the Municipality of Tirana.
Read their letter to the Mayor in English and in Albanian:
We are writing this letter to ask for your consideration of our request towards raising public awareness for the citizens of Tirana regarding the protection of the environment.
During the past week (26 – 29 June), we the students of the public school “DËSHMORËT E LIRISË,” learned about the computer program ArcGIS Explorer. This program helped us develop the first Green Map for Tirana as shown in the inclusion.
The Green Map of Tirana that we prepared during this course was published on the web site of the global youth initiative “My Community, Our Earth” organized by the Association of American Geographers, and on the web site of the international organization GREENMAP SYSTEM headquartered in New York City. You can find these publications in the following links:
• Project Gallery
• First letter to the Mayor
It is our desire that you also publish our maps in the web site of the Municipality of Tirana. These maps show Tirana in the present, and our proposal for Tirana in the future.
