TEDxCentralSaintMartins - Urban Green Line - Changing a City Chalk in Hand

Started by students from Central Saint Martins as an attempt to empower some bleak London housing estates through (guerilla) gardening, Urban Green Line has evolved into a guide to everything 'green' in the capital — co-created around a simple concept of the green line as a physical, digital and symbolic guide. The design uses a simple green line "painted" on an online map to symbolise the links between green spaces, organisations and communities. People can add to the line in both their physical environment and online by tagging green spaces and sharing information with the community. UGL connects, mobilises and guides people, organisations and businesses towards a more sustainable city, while encouraging community engagement and co-creation along the way. The Urban Green Line map is for everyone who wants to share their green experiences and encourage others to do the same. Green lines are tagged by the community and add up to an emergent system of green lines, viewable on the map. As both a symbol and a guidance system, the Urban Green Line creates a strong visual and environmental impact — each green line adds to a better city. In short, Urban Green Line has a mission to change the world with a simple green line. TEDx is a program of local, self- organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
