SDG30 needs more exposure within younger generations.
SDUC brings seasoned changemakers and new change seekers together from across the earth. Our gathering informs and drives the field of public interest communications through lectures, workshops, and seminars.
An interactive conference that introduces the SDG to students.
The Sustainable Development University Conference is a proposed event featuring speaker panels, workshops, networking events amongst other innovative continued learning techniques. With opportunities to teach, coordinate and network, industry professionals and pre-professionals are encouraged to participate in a unique personal and professional development experience.
Package the SDG and Agenda into an interactive, memorable and digestible experience.
1. Educate students
Inform pre-professionals, ages 18-26, on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and how they can incorporate these into their career
2. Professional Development
Offer continued learning and networking to current practitioners and researchers from diverse disciplines working for social good. “When one teaches, two learn”
3. Data Immersion
Bring the Sustainable Development Goals to life and off the paper in a memorable, easy-to-digest package
An exhibit that isn't confined to any one location.
Developing the augmented reality was a completely new skill for me. I began researching other types of AR exhibits and games. From here, I began iterating how I could interpret some of these various setups for our specific use: data presentation. Ultimately, I decided the most innovative way to utilize the AR for our event was to implement it as part of the event marketing. A few factors I pulled from the sketches, were:
The idea of "anytime, anywhere"
The exhibit does not need to be locked to the venue
Can be triggered whenever user wants to
An exploratory moment rather than static walls
