The Massive Data Institute at Georgetown's McCourt School of Public Policy is hosting a data challenge inviting undergraduate and graduate students and early-career professionals to create or improve indicators involving green space to better understand and measure community impact. Participants will access various data sources on our Redivis platform in individual or team notebooks to transform green space data into community indicators.

When: February 1-28, 2023

Where: The data challenge is entirely virtual, with information and rules of the challenge available on this website. Updates will be posted on our challenge website<> and emailed to registered participants.

Who you are: We welcome any participants over age 18, especially undergraduate students, graduate students, and early professional data scientists. Analysts based in academic institutions, government statistical offices, think tanks and policy labs, and community organizations are encouraged to participate.

What topics you can explore: Participants can analyze green space data in tandem with various other datasets that include health, environment, and/or public safety data.

There will be separate prize categories for submissions examining the effects of green space on the following subject areas: community health, community safety, specific populations, and physical environment.

Example Topics:

  *   Are communities in close proximity to green space more likely to have better air quality?

  *   Is there a relationship between green space and social vulnerability?
  *   Do communities with better green space access experience lower rates of violent crime or gun deaths?
  *   How strong is the relationship between community green space and obesity?
  *   What are the effects of good park systems on mortality?

Additional competition details, including submission categories, prize amounts, evaluation criteria, and a list of FAQs are available on our website<>. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.
