Hangzhou Eco-Culture Association

The environmental advocacy group Green Zhejiang was established in 2000 and registered as the name of Hangzhou Eco-Culture Association in 2010 in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province of China.

It is also a member of Waterkeeper Alliance and the co-founder and current coordinating organization of the China River Watch Alliance.


Date of Establishment:

20-Jun, 2000

Purpose of Organization:

Advocating lifestyles of health and sustainability, promoting environmental information disclosure, improving the awareness and capability of the general public to protect home.

Experience:

Based on the experiences of Green Map System and China Water Pollution Map (qiantangriver.org), Hangzhou Eco-Culture Association started a collaborative interactive map development especially for the Qiantang River based on a well-known crisis platform – Ushahidi. This map provides an exchange platform for water pollution information to the general public. It could clearly show the locations of the pollutions. Users could easily use the platform online or on their cell phones to interactively obtain water pollution information and report new pollutions instantly by the online map or its iPhone or Android applications. The information includes violations, water quality monitoring results and industrial pollution sources (Click to see video 1, video 2). It is in the hope that in a long run the program will (a) enhance transparency of environmental information; (b) urge governmental agencies and industries to take more prompt actions to mitigate environmental impacts; (c) increase public awareness and participation of water protection.
