This interactive/data viz was made over a 24-hour period for the Future of Food Hackathon at National Geographic headquarters in Washington D.C. as part of the magazine’s Future of Food series.
The interactive seeks to underline the problem that, as the world becomes more affluent, issues with food production increase. We took data from one nation and applied it to another in a series of “what if …” scenarios. It shows not only problems that might lie ahead, but where nations have gone wrong now.
Our interactive was named “Most Original Idea” by the judges.
