Inscription Printed Inside: Introduction This Green Map celebrates the environmental activities going on in Barking and Dagenham, which are making people’s lives cleaner, greener and healthier. We have developed the map together with the Barking and Dagenham Partnership, Groundwork East London and the local community. The Green Map highlights the differences and creativity of our communities, celebrates our success and shows how local residents and businesses are improving the borough’s environment. The Green Map also shows places of natural and historic interest and links organisations together, including recycling facilities, second-hand shops, energy centres, transport links and community groups who are improving our environment. It also aims to make people more aware of the ‘green’ places in their local environment; inspire us and make us proud; and encourage everyone to get involved and explore their local area. The Green Map shows that together we can make, and are making, Barking and Dagenham a better place to live for existing and future generations.
