What is the Commons?

The Knowledge & Learning Commons has been developed by the UN Library Geneva and the UN Geneva Centre for Learning and Multilingualism (CLM, part of the Human Resources Management Service) to generate new opportunities for learning, knowledge exchange and collaboration for diplomats, UN staff and interns in Geneva.

The Commons combines the functions and resources of the Library and CLM, and offers spaces and technical support for new interactions and co-creation activities.

The Commons’ objective is to encourage innovation, collaboration and co-creation on subjects relevant to professionals in the area of multilateralism. It is an opportunity for everyone to generate and exchange knowledge in collaborative spaces that inspire new ideas and collaboration.

The Commons welcomes activities, events and learning experiences in a variety of formats, including interactive lectures, workshops and collaboration sessions, skills-based courses and collaboration exercises.
