New York City STEW-MAP


New York City

[image:] Map of Stewardship Organization locations in New York City area. Who takes care of New York City’s environment? The answer is all of us. Our landscapes shaped by many different institutions, groups and individuals. STEW-MAP is a data-driven tool designed to demonstrate that people can be positive agents of change in their communities. Our intent is to visualize the often ‘unseen network’ of stewardship actions throughout any given neighborhood, city, region or beyond.

STEW-MAP supports government and civic groups alike to effectively coordinate and collaborate, to identify opportunities to better engage New Yorkers in caring for the environment, and to enhance the capacity of the stewards of our communities. This tool can support civic participation, increase neighborhoods’ social cohesion, and support requests for funding and programming.
