GEO Virtual Symposium 2020

June 15 - June 19

You are invited to participate in the first-ever GEO Virtual Symposium 2020 – which will take place entirely online.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Group on Earth Observations has announced the format of the event to be held remotely from 15-19 June 2020. The global GEO community will benefit from a series of interactive webinars over the course of one week that will provide in-depth discussions from experts on a range of relevant issues to the GEO Work Programme Flagships, Initiatives and Activities.

At this first year of the 2020-2022 GEO Work Programme, the Symposium will focus on strengthening the capability of GEO Work Programme activities to implement their plans effectively. It  will cover topics such as:

Leveraging Advanced Technologies
Engaging UN Agencies and Intergovernmental Organizations
Contributing to Reproducible Knowledge
Resource Mobilization and Sustainable Funding 
Co-designing Capacity Development 
Focusing on Impact: Regional GEOs 
Monitoring Essential Variables
Water and Coastal Observations 
And more… 

A special session on Earth observations for COVID-19 Response and Recovery will start off the week to mark the contributions of the GEO community to this significant challenge.

All sessions will encourage interactive participation from attendees.
