Recruiting Organization: OSDG Community platform

Who are we?

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

At the beginning of 2021, the OSDG Community platform will launch a large-scale exercise and invite 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.

We intend to open the contribution to experts from academia, research centers, NGOs, companies, and the civil society at large. We want to have the broadest possible consultation possible involving several thousand volunteers!

What will you be doing?

The Platform is an ambitious attempt to bring together researchers, subject matter experts and SDG advocates from all around the world to create a large and accurate source of textual information on SDGs.

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, the volunteer is shown a text together with an SDG label associated with it - this usually comes from the source - and asked to either accept or reject the suggested label.
