Elsevier Foundation joins DataKind, ONE Campaign, FareShare and Christian Aid to use data for tackling poverty and justice, climate change and UK food shortages.

What is a #DataDive? In short, it’s a marathon weekend event with over 70 data scientists, developers and enthusiasts working alongside nonprofits to strategize, visualize and crunch data critical for moving the needle on issues as diverse as fighting corruption, arming African farmers with weather data to navigate climate change and ensuring that surplus food in the UK gets to homeless shelters and hungry families. This weekend, nearly 20 Elsevier volunteers have pitched in to make it happen.
