What is a Green Site?

Every Open Green Map features green sites highlighted by our Green Map Icons. The set of 170 icons represents the full range of sustainable living, nature, culture and society sites. About 15% of the icons represent negatives and draw attention to problems in order to raise awareness and promote action. A few point out 'neutral' landmarks, but most focus on positive green sites. Hover over each icon in the Legend or in a green site's info-window for the title and definition. At GreenMap.org/icons, download the poster and learn more about this award-winning iconography.
