Capacity building is critical! The expertise we have attracted and cultivated is remarkable. Collaboration will amplify our impacts! Now we want to redefine the community mapping experience and advance capacity building across the board, starting in NYC – and at the same time – include and impact our global and local network. We’re creating a collaboration space – a Lab – where small groups of expert Green Mapmakers will work together with our relevant local partners and diverse New York residents to address critical climate change, green economy, youth participation, urban agriculture, responsible tourism and more. Alongside improving NYC communities, the Lab will yield powerful models for replication in other cities.

Addressing Urgency with creativity: given our track record, the moveable Green Map Lab has remarkable potential!  Ramping up to co-create, present and share: • handmade, digital and interactive Green Maps, • engaging new mapmaking tools & icons • apps, games, visualizations, products • rich social and eco impacts Inclusive workshops, pop ups, courses, open houses and hackdays for classes, groups, professionals and even tourists This creative community eco-info tech center will build capacity and community resilience with innovative processes, mediums and partnerships. Outcomes will include expanded networks of activism, cross-sector partnerships, rich documentation, adaptable models for other cities, an extended Green Map toolkit and the blueprint for our organization’s future.

We need to protect biodiversity: what can we learn from the mapmakers in southern China at the Mangrove Conservation Network?  !! > !""# ! # " $ # $%&'!() *+,-!./ 0123!%&'()*+(),-./!0123456789:;<= 4441,-((12( ! % " #$% !"#$%&'() HÈÉ>ÊËÌ¿ !ÍÎÏÐ Ñ"#ÒÊÌ¿!ÓÒÔQÕÖ"#×Ì ¿!Ø×Ù"#HÚÛÛÌ¿!ÜÛB" $$ÖÝÞßà%&'(() *+,&#áâ ÞÃãäßà#åæfD#w•ß !"
