  • 1. Chris Church Chair, London 21 Director, CEA June 2008 Mapping as a tool for social and environmental change
  • 2. Mapping for change?
    • “ It is not down in any map; true places never are” Herman Melville (Moby Dick)
    • Or maybe we don't have the right kind of maps…
    • Yet…
  • 3. Green and participatory mapping? Why worry?
    • We have a global environmental crisis.
    • We need to achieve 80% cuts in CO2 emissions by 2050 to avoid seriously damaging and irreversible climate change.
    • So why worry about making green maps?
  • 4. Why map?
    • Mapping to record what is being done?
    • Mapping to record what people think?
    • Mapping to show what isn't being done?
    • Mapping to stimulate change and action?
  • 5. Green Mapping in London - the story so far (1) The London Green Map
    • London 21 was set up to act as a net work for those working on local sustainability
    • This involves a huge range of issues and organisations
    • Some form of information system was vital
    • This led to the idea of a Green Map, launched five years ago as the world’s first interactive ‘Green Map’
  • 6. Green Mapping in London - the story so far (2) The London Green Map

    • Cooperation with UCL led to the idea of ‘Mapping change for sustainable communtiies’ and community mapping
  • 8. Community Maps Community Maps
  • 9. Community Maps – The Royal Docks map under development
  • 10. The next challenges
    • Mapping to stimulate change and action
    • Develop participatory work (even where maps may not be appropriate)
    • Mapping linked to social networking
    • Cooperation between the ‘experts’ and local communities
    • Mapping as an everyday tool
    • Link this work to other practice
  • 11. “ Mapping for change”
    • London 21 sees this as an important area for development
      • Locally
      • Nationally
      • And beyond!
    • The Board of London 21 has agreed to set up a new social enterprise venture to take this work forward.
    • Making the tools more easily accessible
    • We are open to your ideas!
  • 12. Thank you!
