Event description

Description

We are running a hacknight to develop tools for estimating the contribution of food to greenhouse gas emissions, as part of the Greenhouse Gas and Dietary choices Open source Toolkit (GGDOT) project funded by N8 Agrifood. We have made a set of tools for you to play with which shows a breakdown of emissions and nutrition for a set of foods you specify e.g. what you ate yesterday, or your favourite recipe, or the average UK diet.

Data hackers: you could play with different foods to try to find a nutritious and tasty low carbon diet, work on improving the visualisation of this complex dataset, think of neat optimisation tools, work with nutrition and emissions experts to improve the content, and/or participate in the hacknight competition to win £100 of amazon vouchers.

Nutrition, emissions and psychology experts: we welcome your input to improve the content of the toolkit including using other dietary databases (than the NDNS), improving the matching with GHG/LCA databases, and we hope you have fun working with the data hackers to improve e.g. the visualisations, and to participate in the hacknight competition to win £100 of amazon vouchers.

Please sign up here on eventbrite to participate in the hacknight.
