ORGANIZATION: OSDG Community platform

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 295 people are interested

Volunteers from all over the world can contribute to a large-scale public consultation to assess the relevance of various texts to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

What will you have to do?
The Community volunteers use the Platform to participate in labelling exercises where they validate each text's relevance to SDGs based on their background knowledge.

In each exercise, you will be shown a short text of 3-5 sentences together with an SDG label associated with it. You will then be asked to either accept or reject the suggested label, depending on your knowledge and understanding of the subject.

You can choose to label texts on a particular theme (e.g. SDG 13 Climate Action or SDG5 Gender Equality), or label a mixture of texts related to all SDGs.

How will you make an impact?
The dataset created by the volunteers will ultimately contribute to the development of a common understanding on the SDGs while deepening their knowledge of the topic.

The results of your work will not only improve the OSDG tool but also enable international organisations, companies and academics around the world to advance their research on sustainability and help to more accurately define the contribution of various research fields to SDGs.

As OSDG is open-source, we will anonymize the collected data and openly share it with the research community.

Mission Statement

OSDG is an open source initiative that aims to integrate various existing attempts to classify research according to Sustainable Development Goals, and to make this process open, transparent and user-friendly. We integrate existing research into a comprehensive approach that avoids the shortcomings of previous individual approaches and the duplication of research efforts.


OSDG (www.osdg.ai) project aims to classify science, technology, and public policy by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. It is composed by a free, fully open-source, and user-friendly tool that classifies text and publications into the different SDGs.

Join a large-scale exercise and invite OSDG volunteers to assess the relevance of various texts to SDGs. This will provide valuable feedback on the boundaries of SDG-related research, and the level of consensus among different stakeholders.

The project is undertaken by a partnership between PPMI, UNDP SDG AI Lab, and a community of researchers led by Dr. Bautista-Puig.
