but we do not need to worry about this.

The value of a badgeIndependently of the skill or achievement that it represents, the value of a badge is linked to:How well it is defined (=quality of the metadata)The robustness of the instruction and assessment mechanism (rigour)The reputation of the issuer as source of instructionThe recognition of badges by the target community

is directly related to the issuer

GBIF and pilot at GB22 training eventAs an issuer, we need to concentrate in:Defining clear, instructionally significant requirements to earn each badgeDefine and apply thorough, relevant assessment methodsCreate awareness about the badge system and promote its use
