Re: Green Map System’s Workshop for Sustainable Jersey Green Teams
Engage your community with a participatory Green Map project!
Printed and interactive Green Maps guide residents to exciting local green living resources, as well as natural and cultural sites, while highlighting the actions leading to Sustainable Jersey certification. Green Map projects involve community members of all backgrounds and ages. Once completed, it is easy to share your map to spark new appreciation for the environment and opportunities for a greener and healthier lifestyle.
The Green Map movement has impacted over 700 cities and towns worldwide, why not yours? Check out this example –http://GreenMap.org/jerseycity
Thanks to funding from the Dodge Foundation, Green Teams are being offered specialized training and support that will promote a new understanding of community assets and resources.
