Background and objectives
We are looking for a skilled and creative volunteer to assist in designing a report on “Advancing SMART Cities and Urban Digital Transformation to achieve Sustainable Development Goals”. Guided by the Division for Public Institutions and Digital Government (DPIDG) of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), the volunteer will work remotely and create the design of the report. The raw version will come in Microsoft Word format and consist of ca. 20-40 pages, incl. text, tables, graphs and image elements. The design should follow our organization’s branding guidelines which will be shared with the volunteer along with materials such as logos. We will offer a kick-off meeting to address questions the volunteer may have and appreciate regular updates in the work process (e.g. after proposing a first design idea). The volunteer will be acknowledged for her/his efforts in the report. Editable source materials of the final report will be shared with DESA/DPIDG.
