Icebreaker virtual networking


Mélianie Raymond and Maheva Bagard Laursen, GBIF Secretariat


To encourage informal conversation between nodes to ensure that everyone feels connected to the community, new nodes can meet other members of the network, and that there is active participation in the events from the very start.


Considering discussing the following questions:

  • What is your link to the GBIF community?

  • Why did you choose to attend the Global Nodes Meeting?

  • Do you love working from home or would you rather be in the office?

  • Where are you joining this meeting from? Your office? Your kitchen table? The backyard? A café? A museum?

  • How many cups of coffee, tea, or beverage-of-choice have you had before this meeting?

Or just use this opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet new ones!
