Data visualisation as a campaign tool for change

Published on

This presentation was for Social Media Week Berlin on Tuesday, 24th September. It was targeted at NGOs, NPOs, activist organisations and charities who have important key messages to share with the community. The event will combine elements of a presentation and workshop. We will examine case studies of campaigns that have successfully used data visualisation in tandem with social media and content marketing techniques to spread information and ideas, and to counteract prevailing myths about climate change and renewable energy technology. We will then allow time for participants to split up into small working groups. Structured discussion tasks and group feedback will allow participants to investigate how these strategies can apply to their own organisation or issue. Participants will learn practical steps for identifying important messages, researching and developing content, incorporating data visualisation in a powerful and meaningful way, and promoting their data visualisation campaigns through social media and email outreach. In particular, the event will focus on developing powerful stories that will attract the support of influential sharers and thought leaders from a range of backgrounds, from activism through to industry, so as to maximise the campaign's reach and impact.

  42. 42. Purpose • Be clear about your purpose before you begin. • It‟s like writing a thesis – you should be able to write your main idea or question on the back of an envelope. • Think about what questions you want to ask the data.
  43. 43. Purpose • Investigating and verifying claims • Mythbusting • Holding government or corporations to account • Showing the scale/extent/nature of a problem • Conveying solutions to a problem
  44. 44. Brainstorming • What fact shocked you when you first heard about it? • What have you always wanted to understand better? • What‟s a common misconception or myth you encounter? • What can we compare across time or across geography (countries, states)? • What facts do we need to hold governments and corporations to account?
  45. 45. Here‟s something we prepared earlier… • Social Media Week is trying to get 50-50 male-female participation. • We know that women are underrepresented in STEM. • Which countries have the highest and lowest proportion of female participation in STEM?

  52. 52. Preliminary Analysis • Use the chart tools in Excel to quickly spot interesting trends • Pursue these in more sophisticated tools
  53. 53. Honesty With great power comes great responsibility! Data visualisation is a powerful tool –don„t use it to unintentionally or deliberately mislead.
  54. 54. Honesty • 3D tilted pie chart distorts the information. • Apple„s share of the market appears larger than it really is. http://www.theguardian.com/technology/blog/2008/jan/21/liesdamnliesandstevejobs

  85. 85. Tone • Things that are shareable need to have more than a “wow – cool” attraction or they won‟t attract the attention of anyone except data nerds. • There must be a clearly articulated human story with an emotional tone. • Emotions = shares.
