What will happen in your session?
In this hands-on session, we invite you to tell us everything you wish you could track about your participation in civic life. Using participatory methodologies, we will explore showing the world, or just yourself, the impact you have on everyday issues - like ocean cleanup, air pollution or livestock agriculture. We will talk about using big data sets to show how things aren’t as bad as we think, and we invite you to help us design a way to visualize individual and global impact. We’ll use this session to have ideas and design user journeys and potential features for the free.
What is the goal or outcome of your session?
At Greenpeace, we’re thinking about how we activists show their work. Activism happens in the real world. People take to the streets and at city halls to demand change. Lawyers and lobbyists – not just corporate ones – donate their time and energy fighting for better policies. People show up to events (like Mozfest!) and meet people, collaborate and strive to make the world a better place.
Greenpeace is an organization that aims to enable personal activism. We strive to ensure that activism is rewarded not just by winning campaigns, but by witnessing those who do the work. We hope this session will provide insight to what real world activists need from Greenpeace and an engagement platform.
If your session requires additional materials or electronic equipment, please outline your needs.
post its, A3 paper, markers and a monitor would be great!
All weekend, as an installation, exhibit or drop-in session
Yeah, I didn't specifically mention decentralization because of the tight word limits. But basically - we'd love to think about "individual identity and collective culture" in reference to ecological activism and data. And as for thinking about how we pull in Xenshana – Art deco meets the Singularity meets nature - yeah, we got this ;)
