The Eye on Earth Summit 2015 Blogging Competition

The Eye on Earth Summit 2015 Blogging Competition

Eye on Earth is a global movement that aims to improve the access to and availability of environmental, social and economic data to support informed decision-making for sustainable development. We want you to create a blog post that looks at how data and information can make a difference to ordinary people’s lives. Whether it is lifting people out of poverty, helping communities prepare for natural disasters or simply enhancing our ability to make better day-to-day choices, your blog entry should focus on how a #datarevolution can help us secure a better and more sustainable future.

The Eye on Earth Summit 2015 Blogging Competition

Your entry should be innovative, inspiring and motivate your peers to get talking about the vital role data and information has to play in protecting the health of our planet.

What’s the issue?

To protect our future, sustainably-minded decisions must be made today. The problem is that the vital data needed to make these decisions is increasingly obscure, outdated, inaccessible and overwhelming.  Decision makers need access to comprehensive data networks and information in order to make the right call at the right time.

That’s why Eye on Earth is driving the conversation on data sharing that will revolutionise the future of policy and decision-making to create a better future for generations to come.

Be Part of the Solution

The Eye on Earth Alliance believes that you, our global citizens, civil scientists, technology experts, students, and next generation of decision makers, are crucial to shaping a sustainable future for all. Just as the economy needs knowledge to grow, society needs knowledge to learn, and the environment needs knowledge to survive. We need you to give sustainability a voice.
