"Taking the pulse of our planet from space"
Held every three years, the Living Planet Symposium brings together scientists and researchers from all over the world to present and discuss the latest findings on Earth sciences and advances in Earth observation technologies.
- Understand Earth Systems: Prove how satellite data and open science contribute to our understanding of the different Earth systems, climate and their interactions.
- Advance future technology for Earth Observation missions: Demonstrate new Earth observation instruments and technologies for existing and future missions.
- Nurture public & private sector partnerhips: Highlight the importance of existing and new partnerships, expand the Earth observation user base, increase access to capital and commercialisation.
- Enable the Earth Observation digital transformation: Demonstrate how next generation technologies will create new opportunities for Earth observation including data collection, processing, distribution and analysis.
- Empower the green transition: Confirm how Earth observation services can be integrated with local, national and global policies to drive socio-economic sustainable development, security, and resilience.
In September 2021, a final decision will be made regarding whether the symposium will take place, depending on the COVID-19 situation.
Further details are to be announced shortly.
