Thanks to the support from Vinnova, Sweden's Innovation Agency, the Global Goals Lab is part of a testbed for Sweden on open real time data working toward Global Goal 11, Sustainable Cities and Communities. Companies, organizations, cities and researchers can design, protoype and monitor sensor applications with the aim to develop sustainable cities. We will soon post more information as the testbed develops.
As forerunners in their industries, our partners play a key role in supporting and achieving our common vision and they share their climate data on the Quantified Planet Dashboard. Our current partners include Husqvarna and Statens Fastighetsverk who contribute their resources and expertise. Interested in becoming a partner? Contact us.
We are preparing for a unique exhibit “Explore Global Goals for Sustainable Development”, an intersection of art, space and new tech on the island of Kastellet, Waxholm, Sweden, summer 2017. The exhibit will highlight applications of open real time data to achieve the Global Goals, in particular Sustainable Development Goal 11, Sustainable Cities and Communities. Swedish artists will give their interpretation of the Global Goals and there will be a special focus on inspiring young people and children to explore the Global Goals via virtual reality and by building sensors to collect city data.
We also want to shine a light on inspiring projects from around the world that take a closer look at issues such as open data, planetary health, sustainable and resilient thinking in our communities. Do you have a unique project or story that would give food for thought to our Global Goals Lab community? We want to hear from you!
