Engaging Students on Sharing SDG Best Practices at Their Universities: An Interactive Workshop with the SDG Dashboard

March 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Launched in 2017, the SDG Dashboard is a collaborative visualization tool and analytical platform that shares data about how institutions are addressing SDGs in their practices and outcomes. This interactive workshop will guide participants through the SDG Dashboard creation process.  In addition to discussing the importance of the SDGs and data-sharing around the SDGs, we will walk through the initial data entry using a shared, open-source data sheet that all participants can engage with live with hands-on guidance from our team. During this activity, the participants will be taught the core fundamentals of our SDG Dashboard building process we use on our Higher Education SDG Dashboards around the world. The end result is a collaborative, diverse, data visualization SDG Dashboard that we will provide every member access at the end of the workshop. The workshop will cover:

• What each of the 17 SDGs mean
• The importance of the SDGs in society
• How to properly assess and classify the SDGs in terms of academia’s main impact areas
• The applications of Business Intelligence software on raising awareness and knowledge on the SDGs (Tableau)
• The importance of our youth and the impact they can have on the SDGs
