Green Map System promotes inclusive participation in sustainable community development worldwide, using mapmaking as our medium. support locally-led Green Map projects as you create perspective-changing community ‘portraits’ which act as comprehensive inventories for decision-making and as practical guides for residents and tourists. Mapmaking teams pair adaptable tools and universal iconography with local knowledge and leadership as they chart green living, ecological, social and cultural resources.
Green Map System is based in the culturally-rich, socially active neighborhood of the East Village. There, our small team develops both global and local resources that test out new concepts, extend the meaning of Green Map, and support change in our home community alongside our global efforts.
Open Arts LES 2020 Interview
We’ve worked with many artists over the years… there have been murals and tile projects, all kinds of interesting interpretations of mapping in a public space. Working with other people in your neighborhood – bringing knowledge together, creating an experience that’s exciting, memorable – naturally leads to richer mapping. – Wendy Brawer
