Going Open!

In late 2018, the Green Map System went open source to address the urgency of climate change. By then, our network included 990 locally-led Green Map projects worldwide. 1,000+ Green Maps have been published, in print and online!

Now, our focus is on more collaboration and innovation. Much is underway as a result, including a new open mapping platform – see our new website at GreenMap.org and follow our progress.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Children and youth

Open Green Map: Our new platform has more than 60 Open Green Maps! See it at new.OpenGreenMap.org = it has great data sharing capabilities!! Originally launched in June 2009, 500 locally made Green Maps were published on our first 'social mapping' platform (and all its data is on the new platform) . With tools for youth and grassroots users, mobile phone versions, widgets and other map sharing and social networking tools, people in 40 countries have used OGM.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Students

Our youth tools have been in continual development since 1998, and as you can see at http://GreenMap.org/youth, children in 20 countries have utilized them. With assessments underway and multiple demands and requests, we plan to increase youth capacity to analyze, chart and draw attention to their community's vital environmental, climate and social needs with scalable, adaptable and interactive resources. Now, all our tools are free to use, and we're happy to help you get started for free as well!
