The Jerusalem Green Map presents environmental and social sites and activities in the city of Jerusalem, enabling residents and tourists alike to experience the green side of the city in a new and exciting way. With the help of a large pool of volunteers - both from Israel and abroad, the Jerusalem Green Map contains 50 different information layers and has mapped over 750 individual sites across the whole city.
The Jerusalem Green Map was officially launched in February 2006 following two years of intensive work. Building the Jerusalem Green Map network included identifying the layers of information relevant to Jerusalem, translating the icons and definitions into Hebrew, and accumulating and collating the information and sites with the assistance of volunteers.
The Jerusalem Green Map promotes eco-responsible tourism and exposes the user to a range of sites which have never been officially mapped by the city. Furthermore, as the map is available on-line, it enables clear visual representation of 34 separate information layers
The Jerusalem Green Map is the initiative of the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel in partnership with The Ministry of Environmental Protection, The Jerusalem Municipality, and the Sustainable Jerusalem Coalition.
The Jerusalem Green Map is supported by the Jewish National Fund USA.
