#VisualGreenTech Challenge: Week 2
April 19, 2021
This week, I continued sketching for the #VisualGreenTech challenge by Microsoft's Developer Advocacy Team. This challenge is about spreading awareness and taking action this Earth Day. For my blog post, I wanted to compile all of the sketchnotes I have published on Twitter this week.
Prompt: Zero Waste means we encourage redesign of resource lifecycle to reduce waste. Visualize an action we can take to be zero waste!
Prompt: Healthy Ecosystem means we collect and analyze data to understand & reverse declines. Visualize an action we can take for citizen science!
Prompt: Carbon is a measure of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. Visualize an action that makes us carbon-efficient!
Prompt: Electricity & energy supply contribute the most to our carbon footprints. Visualize an action that makes us energy-efficient!
Prompt: Carbon intensity measures the carbon produced per kWh of electricity used. Visualize carbon intensity with an example or metaphor!
Prompt: Embodied carbon is like a fixed carbon cost for hardware creation & disposal. Visualize an action that extends hardware lifespan!
Prompt: Energy proportionality compares the power consumed by computers to their utilization. Visualize an action that maximizes computer utilization!
