Depending on local decisions and audiences, Green Maps are often printed on paper. Of course, this impacts trees, and leads to the question, how can we give back?
A Walk in the Park - SDGs in the Real World
We’ve been out and about, helping new projects get rolling, distributing our newest map, and getting involved with planning for September’s days of action, around the United Nations and across the city.
WOW! Together, we did really well in this campaign!
We're delighted that Green Map's story was the cover story for NYC's commuter news, AM NY on April 1, 2019! Our thanks to journalist Jefferson Siegel for both the photography and the article, "East Village-based Green Map System uses visuals to defend against climate change". This immediately led to the taping of a local TV spot (link to come)!
How did Hurricane Sandy empower us at Green Map System?
Our director writes: The floodwaters stopped just a few blocks from our office in the East Village of Manhattan on October 29, 2012. Nevertheless, both the office and my apartment lost power for the entire workweek. With my trusty bicycle, I found places to work outside the dark zone, and found ways to pitch in on the relief efforts, including cycling supplies out to a hardhit area and considering how our resources could involve more people in this critical issue.
