London Green Map presents a different picture of London,
highlighting the diversity and creativity of our communities,
and the ways they have found to make a green and healthy
future a reality today. The London Green Map project will
also engage Londoners in a mapping process that is creative,
inclusive and educational. Groups across Greater London
will also be starting their green map on Saturday 5 June.
The London Green Map is also an interactive website that
visitors can search by postcode or add their project to
online. Green Maps have already been produced in Hackney,
