Our inspiration for our climate change webpage was the lack of necessary attention and action by politicians in combating the climate crisis. We aim to garner greater efforts from the public with our project to encourage people to learn and demand change from our local representatives.
What it does
Our web application hosts effective static and interactive web-based visualizations of climate change data, provides links to donate and promote change, offers the means to locate and contact politicians and state representatives with ease, outlines relevant news articles and links, allows for messaging capabilities, and presents social media links for more information. With this platform, our users feel empowered to take action with us in this important cause by donating to global environmental conservation organizations and have access to their local representatives to demand change.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are incredibly proud of our clean and beautiful end result. We were able to accomplish more than we could've imagined in the less than forty hours given to us. We felt that we successfully found creative solutions to each and every one of our challenges and wholly encompassed our projects goals.
What we learned
We learned the most important aspects of developing and implementing a working project from scratch. It's easy to give up after a long obstacle, but we all learnt to approach problems and challenges differently each time we got stuck. Each of us learned new libraries, languages, programs, and platforms to create our project. We were also able to gain strong team collaboration skills and experience.
What's next for ACTonClimateChange
We hope to build the foundations for a successful hub of climate change data, visualizations, links, and more for the general public to take their action in the climate crisis. We also hope to grow our social media following and contribute more in great ways to our web page.
