Cities are laboratories for climate innovation; solutions piloted in cities are frequently scaled up to provincial and national governments. Cities are also where people live, and connecting climate and cities gives individuals a more tangible role to play in shaping their communities and their world. Benchmarking cities helps identify leaders and laggards, accelerating adoption of best practices across borders and oceans. Drawing on data sets compiled by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), hackathon teams will visualize progress (or lack thereof) on decarbonization. These visuals will serve the global network of over 30,000 Climate Reality Leaders as they meet with city representatives to accelerate progress. Visualizations will be evaluated on intelligibility, interactivity, automation and aesthetics.
Data source: The data from the CDP that we'd like teams to work with and have centralized it here.
