IB1 update 2019-04-29

There are 14 calendar days to go until we touch down in Geneva.

Our provocation paper has had over 20 contributors, is now in draft form and is almost ready for broader review: we will circulate to those on the mailing list when ready. In the document, we discuss:

  • What’s at stake and what we plan to do
  • The importance of governance
  • Culture, our stories, language and definitions
  • Making, testing and learning for users
  • Standards for machines and humans
  • A framework for our environmental data infrastructure
  • Guiding principles for our work
  • Next steps, and how you can get involved

We have also mapped Icebreaker One against the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Add your comments here.
