Cross-cultural data literacy

Join our international project about data visualisation, data-ethics and data-humanism!

Cross Cultural Data Literacy is an international project about data visualisation, data-ethics and data-humanism. As a participant you can experience how data can be collected, read and visualised. This “data literacy” will make you aware of what data is, and hopefully encourage you to ask ethical questions about data. 

Global Health will be the main theme of this project. This theme can be interpreted very broadly. You can collect and visualize data about healthcare, but also about COVID-19, air quality, nutrition, mental health, sports and exercise, etcetera. This theme is derived one of the Sustainable Development Goals of the World Bank.

Students with a wide variety of cultural backgrounds from around the globe will work together and exchange data, using their cultural variety as a lens to learn from these differences.  

During the course of the project you will create data visualisations and data stories from a human perspective. This means designing data visualisations representing the real lives of people and their behaviour.

The teachers and coaches of this project will experience how data literacy can be taught in an innovative way.

We are ready to question the impersonality of a merely technical approach to data and to begin designing ways to connect numbers to what they really stand for: knowledge, behaviors, people.
~ Giorgia Lupi

We believe data should be accessible and empowering for everybody. Data can be a powerful tool for people, enabling them to enrich their lives, broaden their view on society and learn from each other.

The quote from Giorgia Lupi you see above, was one of our main inspiration sources. You can read her whole manifesto here.
