The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development explicitly recognises volunteer groups as stakeholders to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Sign up for an online volunteering opportunity at the OSDG Community platform, developed in partnership with UNDP SDG AI LAB, PPMI, and SDG researchers led by Dr. Nuria Bautista Puig.
Become part of the global SDG movement
OSDG aims to bring together the knowledge and expertise of people from around the world to better understand the nature of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). OSDG is a partnership between PPMI, UNDP SDG AI Lab, and a growing community of researchers led by Dr. Nuria Bautista Puig. We have initiated work in three major research areas: ontology building, data collection and machine learning. You can become part of this SDG movement by joining our community platform.
Help us to grow and address new needs and challenges
There is great demand from within the UN system, as well as among policymakers and various public and private organisations, to benchmark their progress in achieving SDGs. Our goal is to provide an automated and scaled solution that meets the needs of multiple stakeholders. We also want to expand the reach of the OSDG tool and services beyond the English-speaking world.
Help to advance the OSDG’s open-source research approach
We believe that together, we can create more efficient and higher-performance tools. OSDG is an open community, and its solutions are open source. This means that the data (anonymised) collected by the OSDG community will be fully and openly shared with the research community. Through the community platform, you can help us to develop a higher-quality solution and support the development of open-source machine learning products.
