Harvard Climate Justice Design Fellowship
June 2022 - January 2023
"The mission of the Climate Justice Design Fellowship program is to empower environmental justice advocates and public servants from around the United States to design and build accessible data tools that help them promote equity and justice in their communities."
The goal of this project, Canopy of Stories, is to pair qualitative data (community stories and feedback) with quantitative data (temperature, tree canopy, maps) and visually present how climate change impacts our frontline communities in Multnomah County. Too often we see headlines and studies presenting ‘disproportionate’ impacts on Black/brown and low income communities, but that work is often missing the personalization and community involvement of those most impacted – in a vacuum of academia or government. This project aims to show the importance of qualitative data in the form of community stories and how it creates a fuller picture of how communities are impacted by lack of tree canopy, rising temperatures, and the resources needed.
