Following a U.N. climate change report calling climate change a 'code red for humanity,' we were inspired by the prevalent issue of Earth's changing climate and it's potential effects. We wanted to address the issue by spreading awareness through news articles and giving tips on what people can do to help slow climate change.
What it does
Our website collates all the news regarding the effects of and what people are doing regarding environment and climate change. Furthermore, the website also includes personalized tips and actions people can take to help slow climate change and save the environment.
How we built it
We built out website using Figma and designed the logo using Photopea.
Challenges we ran into
A challenge we ran into was the formatting of our project. Having no prior experience with Hackathons and coding, after developing our idea, we had difficulty executing it. Thus, we ended up designing our product and its interface to show our vision and concept.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud that we were able to build a functional website in the time given. Like previously mentioned, we had no experience with Hackathons, so we're very proud of being able to create a finished product that reflects our beliefs and hopes for creating a better environment
What we learned
Through this Hackathon, we learned many lessons, not only in our topic of environmental and climate change, but also learning how to improve our project. One particular lesson was related to making sure we had a good color palette for our project and the colors didn't clash with each other. We thought this lesson was very helpful for this project as well as future projects.
What's next for Climate Action Now!
We are hoping to further expand our website and include code in the future to add other news articles and maybe automate the process. We are also looking to spread awareness for climate change by sharing our website with people around us such as friends and family.
