Got a problem in your community – pollution, too many fast food restaurants, unsafe playgrounds – that you want to do something about? Perhaps you’d like to approach your local leaders about getting help, yet to do so you need credible evidence to prove that the problem is real.
And maybe you’re not a professional researcher or activist – what do you do?
Fortunately, there are an increasing number of free online resources that can help turn even the most amateur activist into a professional presenter of compelling evidence (or at least get you started!).
The toolkit will take you step-by-step as you learn how to:
- Create a research question (“How many diesel-spewing trucks drive down my street?”) that you can then investigate.
- Understand what data is and how to gather it.
- Use HealthyCity.org to collect and map problems and possible sources of help in your community.
- Present your data and other findings in a visually compelling way.
- And much more…
