Project DescriptionThe mission of the Portland Greenmap project is to strengthen the community's
awareness of and connection to its urban ecology and social resources through
locally created maps.
Greenmaps arrange several types of information as a continuous integrated whole:
urban hikes, how to get around without a car, socially responsible businesses,
sources of pollution, great spots to watch the sunset, volunteer opportunities,
hidden elements of water, waste, and energy systems, important social
resources, and much more. The goal is to illuminate the inter-connections
between society, nature and the built environment, helping residents to make
lower impact lifestyle choices, or to make a difference by getting involved.
