Our Humanitarian Encyclopedia team is organizing a workshop on 24 March as part of the Greater Geneva Open Innovation Festival (18-28 March 2021) linked to the third edition of the Geneva Trialogue. This year’s theme is “Scaling Open Innovation for the SDGs”.
The festival represents a moment of collective learning, a place of training both in the skills that have become essential for continuing to innovate in the post-covid era and in the culture of open innovation.
Essential to identifying commonalities and divergences in the way humanitarians communicate key concepts is to identify variations in concepts and their meanings across geographic regions and organization. This workshop seeks to localize a small set of key concepts from the Humanitarian Encyclopedia’s list of 129 concepts, identified in a participatory process and validated by global experts. By capturing local perspectives on key concepts, localized content will be directly integrated into the Humanitarian Encyclopedia’s online and dynamic concept entries, to be released in 2021.
