Eye on Earth Community
The Eye on Community is a truly global and diverse community whose members (now more than 3,600) share a passion for the Eye on Earth Mission, Vision and Principles. They represent the full diversity of Sustainable Development data, information and knowledge stakeholder groups. The majority of the membership are experienced practitioners, coming from Academia, NGOs, the private sector, government organisations, etc. They include innovators, technical experts, solution providers, educators, policy experts but also subject matter experts from a vast diversity of disciplines; they represent the demand side, who are impeded by diversity of data-related challenges. The collective knowledgebase represented by the Community is vast; Eye on Earth convenes and converges this vast knowledge pool and facilitates collaboration to, step-by-step, breakdown barriers such as lack of data, information, knowledge in order to achieve sustainability.
Motivations for joining the Community are varied, but core value-proposition for participation includes: knowledge exchange with synergistic disciplines and other geographies; personal professional development; networking opportunities and identification of potential collaborators from other regions or disciplines. Participation in the Community is voluntary, and is possible in an individual capacity or as a representative of an institution.
