Activism by numbers

The Mathematics for Social Activism conference took place last June, focusing on using mathematics and data to drive social progress by bringing together mathematicians, data analysts, social scientists and practitioners from academia, NGOs and government. Topics included using data and mathematical modelling to understand and tackle challenges such as climate change, poverty, inequality, social unrest and polarisation in society, effective communication and democratic decision making.
