GEO Week 2019 Highlights the Value of Earth Observations to the Global Economy
Join the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) to ensure Earth observations drive productivity and inclusive growth across our economies at GEO Week 2019.
From 4-9 November 2019, Ministers from GEO’s 105 Member governments, business leaders, heads of international non-profits and passionate experts will meet in Canberra, Australia for GEO Week 2019 and the GEO Ministerial Summit.
The week’s events will ensure that data about our planet becomes a core input to strategic decision making and key to day-to-day economic, environmental and development decisions.
All economic and business decisions must now consider how the planet is changing, and Earth observation (EO) data can improve our economies from top to bottom. GEO Week 2019 will highlight how investments in EO make this possible, delivering major returns on investment to our economies and communities.
Participants will explore how the integration of Earth observation data into our digital economies is key to driving progress on the big three global policy frameworks: the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Climate Agreement, and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
Technology and space companies from around the world are invited to participate in GEO Week 2019 as part of the brand new Industry Track. The launch of the Industry Track recognises the important role companies play in harnessing the full potential of Earth observations and the need to build relationships between the commercial sector and the GEO community.
With a range of Side Events, Exhibition Spaces and Lightning Talks, GEO Week activities are designed to give participants a platform to promote their capabilities to a large and diverse audience, network, forge new partnerships, conclude deals and announce new initiatives.
Don’t miss the opportunity to join GEO Week 2019, one of the world’s largest gatherings of Earth observation experts.
