Depicting the Need for Systems Change by Graphicacy

Curbing global warming, halting the loss of biodiversity, and building a just and equitable economy are among the world’s most pressing needs. To track progress and reveal systemic obstacles to reaching these goals, World Resources Institute (WRI), the Bezos Earth Fund, and a team of partner organizations created the wide-ranging Systems Change Lab data platform. The platform visualizes a path forward in improving global systems sparking bolder action. Systems Change Lab worked with Graphicacy and interactive agency Outright to help bring this platform to life.

Launched at the COP27 climate conference, the Systems Change Lab platform includes data dashboards, narrative pages, and other content allowing users to monitor progress, learn and share pathways to change systems and encourage bolder action. The platform is organized around the world’s major systems, from food to finance, transport to good governance.
