Dynamic Collaborative Visualization of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Creating an SDG Dashboard for Reporting and Best Practice Sharing

Abstract

Dynamic data visualization is a collaborative dashboarding methodology used to identify trends and insights in data while revealing changes in activity and work progress. This paper introduces a dashboard technique that collects, reports, and shares global business schools’ fulfillment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)--the SDG Dashboard. With this tool, business schools can share experiences with the goal of promoting sustainable change and advancing the work (e.g. research papers, partnerships, and syllabi) being done internationally within schools. By revealing patterns and trends that may not be evident when reading individual school level accounts of SDG alignment, this dashboard was created to promote inter-school collaboration while highlighting best practices. Overall, it can be used as a high-level assessment tool to highlight areas of greatest impact on the SDGs as well as opportunities for growth. The SDG Dashboard allows users to drill down into the data, revealing patterns of global impact, while also highlighting the breadth of work that is being done. This dynamic dashboard is an agent for collaborations in all topics outlined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which are: sustainable economic growth, responsible consumption and production, availability for decent work, poverty eradication, cleaner energy, environmental conservation, and the foray of issues concerning overall inequality and quality education.
