Each locally-created Green Map is a fresh perspective encouraging discovery, personal involvement and greener everyday choices through a shared visual language of Green Map Icons. Project funding can be derived from several sources, but all Mapmakers pledge that content is not influenced by sponsors, and that they will do their best to be accurate, fair and inclusive. Since global transformation takes hold gradually through local action, Green Maps help address unhealthy conditions, climate change, species loss and inequity as they celebrate heroic efforts to restore and conserve the assets of each community.
