Green Map System supports inclusive participation in sustainable community development worldwide, using mapmaking as its medium. Working collaboratively since 1995, this nonprofit expands the demand for healthier, more vibrant communities with adaptable mapmaking tools and universal icons, multi-lingual participatory websites, workshops and regional hubs. Transforming local information into global interaction, the interactive Open Green Map platform invites the public to enhance the maps as well as explore them. Building leadership, networks and skills, Green Map teams have extended their impacts with sustainability initiatives that address directly challenges to community well-being.
