Competition: Telling stories from data

April 12, 3:00 pm - April 13, 6:00 pm

If you’re interested in data, or if you are passionate about sustainability issues like food, water and climate, then this competition is for you!

The Sustainability Storytelling Competition is a 24-hour challenge to create maps, analyses and stories from sustainability and humanitarian data hosted on Resource Watch. You’ll get the opportunity to explore connections between different resources as well as develop and demonstrate your skills in data visualization and telling stories from data.

The winning team’s data story will be featured on the Resource Watch blog, with you as the author! You’ll also be introduced to experts on your issue within the World Resources Institute, which has consistently been ranked as one of the top environmental think-tanks in the world. The hackathon will take place on Friday, April 12 from 3–5 p.m. and Saturday, April 13, 2019 from 9 a.m.–6 p.m.
