GEO Week Side Events

 

From 4-5 November, we invite you to participate in a wide range of community-led events to learn about and engage with GEO activities that are contributing to global environmental and development goals.

If you are not part of an official GEO-XVI Plenary delegation, you need to register to attend the GEO Week side events on Monday and Tuesday (free). If you also want to visit the Industry Track events, there is a one time fee of $AUD250.
