Digital Conference to Digital Knowledge Commons

On 3–5 June, the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) achieved the first environmental digital knowledge commons of its kind at the GLF Bonn Digital Conference. Looking at sustainable landscape knowledge as a shared, multiplex resource, nearly 5,000 participants joined in from 146 countries and 6 continents to discuss how to rebuild the planet’s food systems after the coronavirus pandemic. The numbers — 300 speakers, hundreds of organizations, 235,000 engagements on social, 22,000 messages plus 2,500 articles exchanged amongst participants — highlighted the need for platforms like GLF to grow and continue including the voices of diverse knowledge holders from every corner of the world.
