We are the
World Data League.

WDL is an international non-profit competition that
gathers the best minds in the Data Science field to develop
long-lasting solutions for social impact challenges.

We are a place where brilliant minds gather to learn, compete,
connect, and use their skills to make a real impact in society.
Ah, and fun, have lots of fun!

We believe in social impact.
We dream big, and we want to be part of the solution. For that, we pick topics related to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and use real-world challenges provided by our partners. Once the competition finishes, we share the insights and results with the world. All WDL knowledge becomes public to be used at no cost by anyone, anywhere.

WDL is listed on the Top 100 AI solutions for Sustainable Development by IRCAI, UNESCO International Research Centre on Artificial Intelligence.

The WDL community brings together data scientists, data science companies, and topic entities - institutions working on the challenges' subjects. Everyone wins.
