Design & Viz will save the world

2017-02-06

 

I joined the #VizForSocialGood non-profit data viz project as a volunteer. ‘Viz for social good’ is a platform for data visualization enthusiasts who are focusing on a social problem solving by their informative visualizations. You can find more information about it: https://www.vizforsocialgood.com/how-it-works/

We, data visualizers can use the power of visualization to raise awareness about a worldwide problem. I think we are the link between an organization and people because the visual communication is the only language that does not need to be translated. I want to be part of more such projects. See who are the Featured volunteers and sign up you too!

The last project came from UNICEF. Its aim was creating an informative dashboard on the situation of refugees and migrant children worldwide. They shared a public dataset and other usable sources.

Here is my work:

Actually, I was totally shocked seeing the data about those children. Do you might think that 31 million children are on the move based on the statistics of last year? This is a huge number and they are just children. And now we should think about what is important buying another LV bag or donate a non-profit organization. The answer is up to you.

If you know any similar non-profit project just leave a comment 🙂

I love taking datasets into beautiful and informative visualizations. Besides data, I am also very passionate about traveling, surfing, cooking and exploring the outdoors with my dog.
