    Tell a data story. Visualize a better world.

    In collaboration with the World Bank, the United Nations Foundation, and the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data, Google Cloud is hosting a data storytelling contest called Visualize 2030.

    If you’re a college or graduate student, this is your chance to make an impact on the global community.

    The 2030 Agenda

    From ending poverty to preserving biodiversity, The 2030 Agenda is made up of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that define a plan of action for people, planet, and prosperity. These goals seek to meaningfully transform three critical areas: ending poverty, helping society, and preserving the environment.

    The challenge

    Tell a data-driven story that reveals how at least two SDGs influence each other and what actions might be taken in order to reach those goals by 2030.

    The reward

    The top five eligible submissions will receive:

    • $10,000 (USD) cash prize
    • Announcement during the
      UN World Data Forum
    • Publication by Google Cloud

    Your toolbox

    Data

    To participate in the contest, you must use data from at least one of the newly available BigQuery public datasets provided by the UN Statistics Division and the World Bank. Any outside datasets will not be considered and will result in your application being disqualified.

    Visualization

    You will be able to access the datasets directly through Google Data Studio, a free service for analysis, visualization, and reporting. You must use Data Studio to visualize the data and create your data story.
