We’re pleased to share “GBIF habla español”, a new project created by SiB Colombia & GBIF España for promoting participation in our network’s community.

Building on SiB Colombia’s earlier success in developing stylish and substantive videos, this collaboration with GBIF Spain aims to produce new learning and promotional resources that serve to bridge one of the linguistic gaps in the GBIF network.

A promotional animated video serves as the centerpiece, highlighting the importance of sharing data through GBIF in simple language that increases the context and relevance for Spanish-speaking communities. An accompanying toolkit that includes movie scripts, graphics, interview formats and multimedia reference materials will assist other nodes and communities to make videos for their own communities.

Here you can see the video, learn more about the process and use the toolkit.
