Visualizing impact to accelerate change
We are running a data visualization storytelling contest focused on data and the power it holds to accelerate sustainable development.
As we mark the halfway point of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the world is dangerously off-track. Along with new financing, better data is critical to drive progress, and the two are closely linked. Good data is crucial to the effective and efficient use of limited resources to tackle complex and interconnected challenges, and is essential for understanding the impact of different financing tools and approaches, in order to improve impact.
We are looking for dataviz experts who can show and tell how data can help set policy priorities, advance progress on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), or visualize work needs to be done to tackle some of the major and intertwined global challenges of our time.
The winner will be announced by the judges at Festival de Datos in Uruguay in November 2023, and will be invited to present their idea to the data for development community at one of the three plenaries. The shortlisted submissions will also be showcased in an exhibition at the Festival.
