My Eco-city - Sharing the Eco Spots of Melbourne

CrowdSpot in collaboration with the City of Melbourne released a month ago, My Eco-City. It is an simple interactive map of Melbourne where users can create pins, imparting their knowledge of all the amazing projects taking place that assist in reducing Melbourne's footprint. [LINK TO MY ECO-CITY]

“Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.”   

- Jane Jacobs (The Death and Life of Great American Cities)

The pins or spots are broken into various colours and be placed all across the city!

I think is a brilliant idea coinciding perfectly with the mission of 'Urban Growth', communicating real physical initiatives, activities, businesses and groups that are being more environmentally responsible.

A simple and easy pin placement with no need register hopeful encourages people to share and interact with the map.


So everyone can know of all the cool eco-spots around Melbourne!

I take it other cities have similar initiatives, if you know of any please share them. How are they different? What makes them better or not so good?
