Welcome to the exploration platform, Global Goals Lab.
We showcase testbed projects, stories and voices of our passionate network and partners dedicated to implementing to the Global Goals on Sustainable Development.

Projects

June 30 - August 12, 2017, you can visit the exhibit “Explore Global Goals for Sustainable Development”, an intersection of art, space and new tech on the island of Kastellet, Waxholm, Sweden. The exhibit will highlight applications of open real time data to implement the Global Goals, in particular Sustainable Development Goal 11, Sustainable Cities and Communities. 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!
