As for the last 3 editions, we decided to open a Call for Suggestions to encourage interested actors to submit ideas and recommendations for this year's edition of the forum. Thank you to all the organizations having contributed.
A few topics we discussed during the 2022 GeOnG Forum
- Information sobriety, data minimization, low tech and green tech: Imagining how aid actors can limit their environmental impact considering alternative solutions or revisiting their approaches.
- Information and localization: autonomization, empowerment, participation: Reflecting on how data can empower the people most at risk of this global crisis, who are the best placed to adapt to and prevent disasters, leveraging technology in support of localization and new approaches of humanitarian action.
- Information Management and its role to reveal or better respond to the environmental crisis: Presenting examples of projects and showcasing technologies which outline how Information Management can both help shine a light on and address the environmental crisis and its consequences – such as: increased number of natural disasters, populations forced to migrate, chronic humanitarian crises.
- Collaboration and more sustainable and resilient systems: Reflecting on how collaboration can help make Information Management tools and approaches a cornerstone of a more sustainable world. For instance, by considering how aid actors furthering collaboration around IM systems is key to a more open, distributed, trustful and, ultimately, efficient system.
