Justice in the Green exhibition/website
The Development Planning Unit at UCL has worked with MSc students in Environment and Sustainable Development on a Hackney project over the last few years, involving park user groups. This research has fed into a new website, http://www.justiceinthegreen.org.ukJustice in the Green is an action learning platform aiming at contributing to the generation and sharing of action and reflection on the use and appropriation of Hackney Marsh and connected green spaces by the surrounding communities, in the light of the Olympic Legacy process. They are now hoping to take the concept further through the development of an online interctive map based upon networks of community groups and in partnership with another UCL department. You can visit their website here: www.mappingforchange.com There is an exhibition to showcase the research and mark the official launch of the website on Saturday 12th March between 10am and 5pm (exact timings TBC) at Homerton Library, Homerton High St, London E9 6AS

Interesting. Is it just me or is http://www.justiceinthegreen.com not working?Getting Hackney properly represented on Mapping for Change would be a good little project for 2011. Looks like Hackney Wick is already representing.”
Oops the url should be http://www.justiceinthegreen.org.uk – give that a go (corrected in the original post too)
I went along to this event and met some very interesting folk. Looks like we’ll be doing some community mapping this year up in Stokey as a result too which is nice. They had videos playing which outlined the findings for each of the themes of their research. You can check them out under each section of their website:http://www.justiceinthegreen.org.uk
Cool! I wonder if we could make a map of metaphysical landmarks where ecological act have taken place although the evidence of them no longer exists, as we are currently surrounded by the results of un-ecological acts. A bit of psycho-geography.
