SocialHero: UN Sustainable Development Goals

This is a sample blog entry for our first ever online Social Hero Viz-a-thon. Students can use the template below to structure their blog submissions. Contest submissions start November 1, 2018 and will end on November 30, 2018.

For more details on the contest, please click here.

What we are looking for:


  • A short introduction on which UN goal you chose and why.
  • What data did you choose to use? Did you use the sample data provided, or did you include other data sets?
  • If you decided to include other data sources, where did you get the data? are these sources credible?


Basic Example (please elaborate if needed):

11 Sustainable Cities and Communities

Goal 2030: Make cities and human settlement inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

Data: World Bank


Visualizations & Key Insights 



Figure 1: Sustainable Cities and Communities- Annual Mean Concentration of Particles in micrograms

  • What are some key insights you derived from using SAP Analytics?
  • Was there anything that was obvious? If so, what were they?
  • Was there anything that surprised you? If so, what were they?


  • Name at least one takeaway to improve the specific UN Sustainable Development Goal you had chosen in your introduction.
  • How can SAP help better this goal?
  • What type of SAP technologies can we implement?

Basic Example (please elaborate if needed):

SAP can consider working with government and business to add IoT sensors in certain areas to better monitor the particles in the air. The data can then be collected and stored in SAP HANA, and analyzed in SAP Analytics Cloud.

      Looks like a really fun contest Vivian Wang ! I'm sure students would learn a lot about SAP Analytics Cloud while taking part in this event.
