    Abstract

    Good data facilitates acting upon pressing issues, while visualizations help bring the data to life, offering important insights to policy-makers and the public. A specific area where awareness-building is crucial, is the one of social inequalities around the world. This paper presents the work of 17 student team projects, developed during the “Data Visualization” course of the University of Twente at the spring semester 2018, focusing on the topic of enlightening the public over social inequalities, targeting different sustainable development goals, from the ones set by the United Nations. Based on truthful, functional and insightful data visualizations, social inequalities can be effectively communicated to stakeholders and the public, raising awareness on different unjust issues happening around the globe.
