Green Map System promotes inclusive participation in sustainable community development around the world, using mapmaking as our medium. This organization created the Open Green Map platform!

Some of the eco-smart things done in the office include: recycling of all paper, glass and metal, plastic bottles, toner cartridges and electronics; house plants for better air quality; reused furniture; bike parking space indoors. Our lighting is mostly on dimmers and kept low, and we unplug the fridge in winter and set the things we need to keep cool outdoors. We offset our electricity with wind power. We choose recycled or FCS paper and try to design to minimize waste. Most the staff is vegetarian or vegan, and we all use public transport or bike to work. Green Map is a member of local and global networks that promote sustainability, too.

Green Map System supports local Green Mapmakers as they create perspective-changing community ‘portraits’ which act as comprehensive inventories for decision-making and as practical guides for residents and tourists. Mapmaking teams pair our adaptable tools and universal iconography with local knowledge and leadership to chart green living, ecological, social and cultural resources.’

绿地图系统可以帮助各地绿地图绘制者创作出可改变观念的社区“肖像”,为决策提供全面的社区档案清单,并为居民及游客提供使用的导览。地图绘制团队将我们易用的工具,及全球通用的图标与他们的本地知识及领导层结合, 绘制出有绿色生活,生态,社会,及文化特性的资源。
