  15. 15. RESULTS Original Contribution to Knowledge Community mapping is a graphic learning, development, and planning tool that connects people to one another and their home place. Also intended to inspire and support localization for sustainability, the worldwide movement is designed for citizens and communities to engage with and represent the vital interconnections between the human, natural and built environment. As The Ecologist (2003:3) stated that, ‘A Green Map gives you back the city – not in someone else’s sterile view, but as a riotous living tapestry of human activity’. 15
