STUDENT DATAVIZ CHALLENGE 2022: MAKE A DIFFERENCE USING DATA

STUDENT DATAVIZ CHALLENGE 2022: MAKE A DIFFERENCE USING DATA

We are excited to announce that the 3rd annual Student Dataviz Challenge is confirmed for 2022, in partnership with UNICEF, Tableau & Mazars and EDHEC Business School. Together we want to promote the importance of data visualization, encourage the development of data-based decision making in future managers and support UNICEF mission.

“Data is a strategic asset to create a more just and equal world. When the right data is in the right hands at the right time, decisions can be better informed, more equitable and more likely to protect children's rights.”

THE CHALLENGE

If you are passionate about data, or if you would like to practice and improve your data visualization skills whilst supporting UNICEF mission, the Student Dataviz Challenge 2022 is an ideal opportunity for you to make a difference and put your skills to the test alongside of hundreds of other students across Europe.

It is a unique competition designed to put theory into practice and have fun with the data using Tableau software and open data provided by UNICEF. The top 10 entries will present their visualization to the judges and partners and compete for the opportunity to interview with UNICEF for a paid Data Visualization internship.

UNICEF is mandated by the United Nations General Assembly to advocate for the protection of children's rights, to help meet their basic needs and to expand their opportunities to reach their full potential. UNICEF is guided by the Convention on the Rights of the Child and strives to establish children's rights as enduring ethical principles and international standards of behaviour towards children. UNICEF insists that the survival, protection and development of children are universal development imperatives that are integral to human progress. UNICEF mobilizes political will and material resources to help countries, particularly developing countries, ensure a "first call for children" and to build their capacity to form appropriate policies and deliver services for children and their families. UNICEF is committed to ensuring special protection for the most disadvantaged children – victims of war, disasters, extreme poverty, all forms of violence and exploitation, and those with disabilities. UNICEF responds in emergencies to protect the rights of children. In coordination with United Nations partners and humanitarian agencies, UNICEF makes its unique facilities for rapid response available to its partners to relieve the suffering of children and those who provide their care. UNICEF is non-partisan and its cooperation is free of discrimination. In everything it does, the most disadvantaged children and the countries in greatest need have priority. UNICEF aims, through its country programmes, to promote the equal rights of women and girls and to support their full participation in the political, social and economic development of their communities. UNICEF works with all its partners towards the attainment of the sustainable human development goals adopted by the world community and the realization of the vision of peace and social progress enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations.
