SDGi is an innovative information platform focused specifically on breaking down silos associated with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Here are a few things you should know about what makes SDGi different:
SDGi uses state-of-the-art machine learning approaches to map content connections between thousands of SDG-related articles each day. This allows you to explore the context surrounding specific topics or settings you care most about, and to join the dots with relevant ideas and stakeholders you would not discover otherwise.
Unlike other platforms, SDGi does not rank results according to how popular specific articles are or by the traffic flow to individual sites. This means the articles SDGi shows you are most often from primary sources, such as national or local institutions or publications, so you can read undiluted reactions to important local issues.
SDGi does not personalize your results or anticipate what you might want to read. It does the opposite: It deliberately encourages you to step out of familiar topics areas to explore new ideas, networks and disciplines. Enabling you to think in more integrated ways is baked in to why and how SDGI was designed.
Leaving our comfort zones to cross information silos can be daunting. We end up in places we comprehend less – precisely where the potential for new learning peaks. It requires a blend of nerve, serendipity and information platforms that intentionally nudge us towards what we dont know; rather than simply echoing what we do.
