10 years old and still Green
On World Environment Day, 5 June 2009, we launched www.capetowngreenmap.co.za on the same day that our global parent, Green Map Systems, launched their website. Not to be outdone, we are keeping in line with the standards they’ve set, and on World Environment Day 2019, and together with them, we present our new look.
We hope you agree that our fresh, new look website reflects just how much we have grown over the past 10 years.
The people's day
Above all, World Environment Day is the "people's day" for doing something to take care of the Earth. That "something" can be local, national or global. It can be a solo action or involve a crowd. Everyone is free to choose.
Each World Environment Day is organized around a theme that draws attention to a particularly pressing environmental concern. The theme for 2019 is “Air pollution”.
The new look website is very much a work in progress. We look forward to your input in terms of ideas and also, suggesting sites that should be added to the new Cape Town Green Map.
If you were listed on the origional Cape Town Green Map or would like to submit a new site or listing please create an account and submit your sites!
Please refer to the Icons & Criteria page to select the icons that reflect your site or listing.
Over the next few weeks we will be moving all our sites onto the new online platform, creating a better user experience for finding local resources and enabling the green map community to engage more effectively around using the Cape Town Green Map to promote "green" as an informed lifestyle choice. Please join us on the journey!
