Designers and Javacript Developers: Foodscape Mapping Project

Applications open until March 7, 5pm

The “Building Equitable and Inclusive Food Systems at UC Berkeley” team seeks a) Infographic Artists and b) Front-end JavaScript Developers to support The Foodscape Map project with design and coding expertise. The Foodscape Map will provide a snapshot of food-related initiatives at UC Berkeley by showcasing the history, outcomes, and future potential of teaching, research, student organizations, administrative decisions, and dining services. This map will serve as a central hub of information as well as reveal patterns of exclusion based on social markers. By compiling data with an explicit focus on equity and inclusion, our democratically produced map will provide a vital resource for the UC Berkeley community and future policymaking.
