Week 6 was mainly on our project in Environmental Justice. We came up with survey, interview, workshop, flyers and logo as part of our final project. On Thursday We went to Portsmouth Square to conduct interviews. Despite the high turn down rate, we managed to get over 15 responds and recorded several videos.
We were able to obtain many information from our survey but it was very time consuming, so we decided to cut shorter our survey questions. Then we came up with image survey as to easier the interview process and easier for respondents to interpret the questions. We came up with 8 pictures which include Forest, Portsmouth Square, Oakland Bridge with the ocean view, Playground, grocery store at Stockton street, Ping Yuen apartment solar installation, Alleyway, and Broadway Street. We asked people whether those images are related to the environment they live in. From the result, we learned that residents recognized all the images we presented, and their perceptions on environment is the physical environment, such as food, cleanliness,education and safety. Based on the survey answers we decided to create a logo that resonate with the community.
