Virtual Event Virtual Event

This session is for the team to show results from the Civic Capacity and Stewardship Mapping Hack-a-thon. All are welcome to join this presentation.

The hack-a-thon plans to tackle a set of data visualization and data infrastructure problems related to the Stewardship Mapping and Assessment Project dataset for NYC (https://www.nrs.fs.fed.us/STEW-MAP/nyc/). STEW-MAP surveys civic environmental stewardship groups to provide digital maps and organizational network diagrams that show where, with whom, and how groups are taking care of the local environment in NYC. Civic stewardship groups are not only environmentally focused, they include community development organizations, youth groups, public health groups, and more; all of them play a role in conservation, management, monitoring, education, advocacy, and transformation of NYC’s land, air, and water. STEW-MAP was designed to identify active agents of change working in all communities, to acknowledge the work of informal and grassroots groups, and to extend potential partnerships “beyond the known knowns”. It can also be used to identify “stewardship gaps” — areas that are underserved by active environmental stewardship and engagement. STEW-MAP utilizes methodologies to identify new and existing organizations working across a landscape and depicts strategic networks, stewardship gaps, and overlaps in activity.
