Visualizing the future (in five days)
More than 50 Arab youth gathered in Beirut, Lebanon to innovate with data and imagine a more sustainable and hopeful future
A WEEK OF CHALLENGES
According to data from the World Poverty Clock, we are not yet on track to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. Still, many young people remain hopeful for the future. In October, fifty-four young men and women from 13 Arab countries arrived in Beirut, Lebanon for Visualize 2030 – a five-day ‘data camp’ organized by the Arab Development Portal(ADP) to encourage youth from the region to use data and statistics to tell stories about and draw attention to topics of concern for their future. Sustainable living, youth employment, education and access to water were just a few of the issues on their minds.
