Planet Texas 2050 is an interdisciplinary effort emerging from UT Austin to analyze and create solutions to environmental issues of the future. This poster reviews the first steps of this project. Our team of four undergraduate student members of the UT Feminist Geography Collective analyzed the mission statements of approximately 1,000 NGOs in Texas. This was used to build an algorithm with the capabilities of classifying all environmental NGOs in Texas. This work will allow the team to study current sustainability practices in Texas, their geographical distribution, and the gaps in service provision. In turn our method, a tacking between feminist engagement and organizing, and machine learning, offers insights into new kinds of digital feminist praxis.
