The technology to analyse large data is improving every day. Despite these improvements, generated insights deviate heavily from ground reality in developing economies due to the void of high resolution, better quality data. Access to improved data source results in prioritised interventions and optimal decision making towards the circular economy and sustainable development. However, developing economies are facing challenges of cost, method and technology to ensure improved data. This session will utilise three technological experiments regarding healthier cities, river pollution and better disease management to discuss a framework of innovation in design, business and narration of improved SDG data collection. The discussion will also include the implication of these tools in the future of our economy by inspiring large-scale behavioural change through contextualised probes/nudges.
