Can data and stories help save the planet?

How do we get to a more sustainable future if we don’t know where we are?
This is where data can help us in taking the pulse of our societies. While scientists believe that data alone can drive change, people often feel overwhelmed by data. To transform our societies we need to translate evidence into stories. In this session, we explore the power of data storytelling to make scientific and complex data accessible. We launch a new tool and discuss its potential in bringing new insights to life
