On data and design #17 – Stories around the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)


The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted in September 2015 and runs until 2030. Data and statistics are a key element in measuring the development as well as in supporting the implementation of its 17 goals. Data visualization is at the heart of communication of those data. Our next *On Data And Design* session will present different aspects of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): How can data visualization support, but also mislead communication? How do the United Nations communicate their data with visuals and finally, how does a national statistical office use and improves new approaches of data visualization to communicate with the data users?

Darjan Hil from Superdot will cohost the next *On Data And Design* session with Benjamin Rothen from the Road to Bern initiative. The Road to Bern initiative was launched in January 2020 to support the discussion and exchanges before the 3rd United Nations World Data Forum in October 2021 in Bern.

This event will be held in English only.
