Join us for a week-long showcase on the impact of open Earth observations
When: 2-6 November 2020
Last year, at the Canberra Ministerial Summit the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) hosted Ministers from GEO’s 111 Members to endorse a bold and ambitious approach to open data sharing to ensure that Earth observations benefit societies and economies. GEO Week 2020 will showcase the efforts to implement the Canberra Declaration by highlighting initiatives from GEO Members, Participating Organizations and Associates in a series of live discussions and interactive content.
Focused on the key priorities of boosting the digital economy, delivering on GEO’s Engagement Priorities relating to international policy, promoting sustainable development, supporting national Earth observation initiatives and highlighting approaches to open data, this week-long series of online events will engage leaders from across the GEO community to share insights, lessons and advance policies and programmes that impact our planet.
Sessions will take place across multiple time zones to promote live participation from around the globe. Several sessions will be pre-recorded and will be made available online through a variety of streaming platforms and available on the GEO website.
