  1. Jonathan Gray / @jwyg / jonathangray.org Learning with and about

    biodiversity data GDB as a collective learning device to explore climate action MozFest, 7th March 2022
  2. Hello! I am Jonathan Gray. 👋 I am Senior Lecturer

    (Associate Professor) in Critical Infrastructure Studies at the Department of Digital Humanities, King’s College London as well as Research Associate at the Digital Methods Initiative at the University of Amsterdam and the médialab at Sciences Po, Paris. 🌱 My work explores the role of digital data, digital methods and digital infrastructures in the composition of collective life. 🧶 You can find out more about me at jonathangray.org / @jwyg. ⛩
  3. I am co-founder of the Public Data Lab, an interdisciplinary

    network exploring what difference the digital makes in attending to public problems. You can read more about the Public Data Lab’s various projects and collaborations at publicdatalab.org 🎈
  4. Climate action is about more than emissions

  5. None
  6. None
  7. What can we learn about biodiversity data with 
 the

    Global Data Barometer?
  8. Global Data Barometer as a collective learning device

  9. “We need to historicize our data and its organization in

    order to create flexible databases that are as rich ontologically as the social and natural worlds they map, and that might really help us gain long-term purchase on questions of planetary management.”
  10. Not just datasets but also “data settings”

  11. “Embrace pluralism … Data feminism insists that the most complete

    knowledge comes from synthesizing multiple perspectives, with priority given to local, Indigenous, and experiential ways of knowing”
  12. Which kinds of species and ecosystems are included in biodiversity

    data? 🍄 😭
  13. Red listing as a method… … lots of PDF red

    lists
  14. Formats for red listing… Red list CSVs (e.g. Namibia) Red

    list APIs (e.g. Denmark) Red list apps 
 (e.g. Armenia)
  15. Beyond red lists…

  16. None
  17. None
  18. Data not just as representations, 
 but in terms of

    relations
  19. Data as part of living knowledge 
 infrastructures for attending

    to life
  20. Transnational coordination (e.g. red lists) 
 as well as engagement

    with local/indigenous communities and knowledge cultures
  21. What role might data play 
 in supporting “arts of

    noticing”?
