‘Visualize 2030’ contest sees Google Cloud collaborate with the World Bank, the United Nations Foundation and the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data, inviting higher education students to use data storytelling and analysis to drive action around the Sustainable Development Goals.
Visualize 2030 is open to students at the college and graduate level, aged 18 and above, and aims to encourage budding data scientists, journalists, policymakers, and data artists to drive real-world impact through storytelling and design.
“Today’s students are tomorrow’s policymakers and business leaders. They’re fluent in technology, and we want to empower them to use their skills and expertise to tell powerful data stories that can truly inspire action,” said Kathy Calvin, President and Chief Executive Officer of the United Nations Foundation.
The contest challenges applicants to submit a data-driven story that reveals how at least two SDGs influence each other, and what actions might be taken to reach those goals by 2030. What are the shared challenges? What are the shared opportunities? Does one goal need to be met before the other can be? These are some of the questions students are encouraged to consider, and answer, in their submissions.
