[panel discussion] In August 2021, the Digital Public Goods Alliance recognized Fedora Linux as a Digital Public Good. This recognition shines a light on Fedora and its community as models of Open Source best practices and stewards of important digital infrastructure. But what does this recognition mean for Fedora and its historically global community?

This session introduces what a Digital Public Good (or DPG) is, the DPG Standard, and how other digital infrastructure projects can achieve recognition and exposure to a growing audience of global consumers, producers, and contributors to digital infrastructure works.

What is a Digital Public Good, or DPG? A Digital Public Good is open source software, open data, open AI models, open standards, and open content that adhere to privacy and other applicable best practices, do no harm and are of high relevance for attainment of the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Panelists: Matthew Miller, Fedora Project Leader; Justin W. Flory, UNICEF Open Source Advisor; Lucy Harris, Digital Public Goods Alliance co-lead.

Session chairs: Marek Haičman and Michal Ruprich
