This map is charted on the unceded Indigenous land of Tiohtia:ke, commonly known as Montreal, home of the Kanien’keha:ka Nation and a diverse population of Indigenous peoples. When thinking about sustainability, we must address land theft and colonial violence as they continue to exclude individuals and communities from their lands. It is also vital to center anti-colonization and social justice in environmental concerns as well as in resource sharing. Please feel free to add resources to this map that emphasize community care and offer accessible resources; this map is not just intended to showcase “eco-friendly” businesses, but also to help people find the resources that they need.
The territorial acknowledgement was inspired by Concordia University's Indigenous Directions Leadership Group (2017).
This mapping project was originally inspired by a workshop series run by the Dish Project at Concordia in 2019, for which Caroline Alince was inspired to make a map of sustainable resources that they could share with their community. From there, they worked with Concordia University’s Centre for Creative Reuse, the Loyola College of Sustainability and other groups at Concordia University to expand the map. By the end of 2020, the map had 270 points, including community centres, grocery stores, art studios and more. With help from the Sustainability Action Fund, the map was funded and Léa Denieul of Concordia’s Geomedia Lab was able to create a crowd-sourced version where you can add your own points and update the map in real time!
