“Green Maps provide a vision for healthier communities today and a more peaceful sustainable future….”

greenmap-logoThe Green Map System is a locally adaptable, globally shared framework for community map making. The mission of Green Maps is to promote sustainability and community participation in the local natural and built environment.

Using a universal visual language of icons representing green sites and cultural resource, community mapmakers can independently produce unique, locally flavoured images that reflect local needs, yet are part of a global network of maps and resources.



bcThe Mapping Project is funded in part by the Canada-B.C. Labour Market Development Agreement. Also funding has been provided through the Cowichan Land Trust Society.
