The United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a blueprint for achieving a better and more sustainable future and ensuring that no one is left behind.
Esri and the United Nations are teaming up to solve global challenges — including poverty, hunger, inequality, and climate change — through GIS and storytelling, and we need your help to create a story that can effect change, influence opinion, and create awareness.
Who can participate?
The ArcGIS StoryMaps competition is open to participants from two tracks:
Track 1: Students enrolled in or accepted to a two or four-year institution of higher education.
Track 2: Professionals or anyone with an ArcGIS user account, including students at any school grade level.
Each participant may submit a single story to only one track. A participant can be defined as an individual (or) a group of individuals submitting one story together.
Competition entries must be submitted using the entry form by 5:00pm (PDT), November 25, 2020.
Are you a teacher or educator?
The StoryMaps competition presents an opportunity for schoolteachers and educators to investigate contemporary real-world problems with their students. There are a variety of SDGs that connect to the Australian curriculum for junior geography:
|Australian curriculum unit||Sustainable Development Goal|
