The ABW Café will be hosted the last Wednesday of every month and will bring together our partners from non-profits, companies, and research teams to collaborate and share knowledge around a selected topic
Nowadays Analytics significantly contributes to the success of companies. Our vision is that Analytics has the same potential to contribute to humanitarian and societal challenges. Our dream is to apply analytics and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.
Contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals
We believe that analytics can contribute to solving the major challenges facing humanity: climate, hunger, deforestation, the extinction of flora and fauna, you name it. We’ve already seen the tremendous value that analytics can have for commercial organizations and the time is now ripe to harness their power to help solve these problems.
Achieve the SDGs through the application of analytics
This is how much impact our work can have
Curious to increase and broaden your impact?
We don’t want to restrict ourselves to a single SDG, and the problems we’re addressing are global. We’re looking for large NGOs, public institutions and nonprofits with a global focus that are eager to work with us to achieve the SDGs by applying analytics. We welcome companies with expertise in IT, UX/UI, application development, data science and AI, or large corporations that wish to provide support, either by contributing funds, manpower for projects, or technology licenses and capacity. Philanthropic and charitable funds are also welcome, of course, as are volunteers with data science skills, or with project management or marketing skills.
