For Earth Day, April 22nd 2021, the Earth Gratitude map and web app is relaunched today and we invite you to include your (audio) stories till May 6th.

Share your gratitude with the Earth during a walk in pandemic times.
Share with us a moment of gratitude for a place, for the earth, by sending your audio story and your location, together with a picture, a drawing, a small text, to our collaborative Gratitude locative media map and webapp for walking.

What does gratitude mean today, in this and beyond pandemic, for our world, for our planet. What can you be grateful for?
