Partnership Agreement for the

London Green Map



The London Green Map Project


The London Green Map is an interactive map of London, which maps community activities contributing to local sustainable development. The London Green Map celebrates the diversity and creativity of our communities, and the ways they have found to make a green and healthy future a reality today.

Local residents can rediscover their London neighbourhoods, find where they can donate goods for re-use, grow their own food, join a park user group, buy from a farmers’ market, bring their kitchen waste to compost, support a local campaign and get their children to learn to cycle or get their hands in the soil.


The London Green Map project was initiated by London 21 in October 2002 with the green mapping of Haringey and Hackney. The trial phase was completed in March 2004 with the launch of a third pilot, Lewisham’s Big Green Map, and the dissemination of the ‘Green Maps for London Pack’, which has generated interest throughout the UK.

Green mapping has now started in another four London Boroughs, and contacts in another six boroughs have expressed an active interest in the process. Borough maps are printed locally, and there are plans to produce a large London-wide map.



The London Green Map Website


The London Green Map is searchable by entering your postcode to find the nearest community projects or activities, and the directory can be searched by category or key words. The directory is updated on an ongoing basis, and the website currently attracts over 12,000 visitors per month.


The London Green Map website was officially launched on 5th June 2004 and will be widely promoted throughout London over the next few months.


Further information on London 21 Sustainability Network and the London Green Map is available at: and
