With 16 colleges and universities in the Baltimore region, Green Mapping is a great way to orient students to their new campus and to the neighborhoods and city around it. Below are some examples of ways we have engaged students in discovery …and we have many more ideas! Contact us to create a custom-designed experience for your school. We love to collaborate !
- At Towson University, we collaborated with a graphic design studio on a semester-long campus Green Map project. Students researched and created maps that communicated the campus places, resources and behaviors that were aspects of the TU Go Green campaign. A Go Green Student Green Map was inserted into the first edition of the Towerlight school newspaper that year.
- At Johns Hopkins University, we designed a Homewood neighborhoods tour that gave freshman an intro to Green Mapping and an opportunity to add to BGM’s interactive maps as they explored four separate routes near campus.
- At University of Maryland Baltimore County, we introduced Green Map to a variety of departments and supported the investigation of Green initiatives during the Humanities Seminar on History of Sustainability in the United States.
- At Loyola University, we presented and supported a first draft of a print campus green map.
- At Maryland Institute College of Art, we presented BGM to both the Environmental Club and the Information Visualization Certificate Program students. Way back when, we did our first test of the use of Green Map symbols in a graphic design studio. Those students helped us discover how to begin this project.
