Green Map System Overview
Target demographics: Everyone! We provide Green Mapmaking tools to students, grassroots groups, NGOs, universities, governmental agencies and others. Residents, tourists, researchers and media of all backgrounds use the Green Maps.
Direct beneficiaries per year: About 100 new projects start each year
Geographic areas served: 875 diverse communities in 65 countrieserse communities in 55 countries
Green Mapmakers include students, grassroots groups, NGOs, universities, governmental agencies and others. As they chart the way towards a healthier, more resilient and sustainable future, the resulting Green Maps benefit residents, tourists and decision-makers.
Over 500 locally designed, printed Green Maps are in use. 350 interactive maps, created on our Open Green Map platform, can be enhanced with public comments and images, explored on mobile phones and embedded in websites.
Our tools build capacity, knowledge and networks. In 2013 - 2014, with your support, we are developing a ‘data bridge’ to support collaboration and new partnerships to accelerate progress and taking part in beyond-the map initiatives that impact people of all backgrounds.
