There are Plenty of Alternatives. TransforMap makes them visible.


TransforMap works towards an online platform to visualize the myriad of alternatives to the dominant economic thinking on a single mapping system. It will give everyone the opportunity to map the initiatives, communities, projects, worker-owned, self-managed, democratically organised companies and other institutions dedicated to meeting people's needs, serving the common good and/ or contributing to a sustainable way of life.

The Mother of Many Maps

Maps generated out of the TransforMap dataset include visualisations of needs-based initiatives, green projects, and more.
