The ESA Living Planet Symposium is held every three years. This symposium focuses on how Earth Observation contributes to science and society, and how disruptive technologies and actors are changing the traditional Earth Observation landscape, which is also creating new opportunities for public and private sector interactions.

Attracting thousands of scientists and data users, ESA’s Living Planet Symposia are amongst the biggest Earth observation conferences in the world. For decades now Earth observation has played a fundamental role in advancing our understanding of how our planet works and how it is being affected by climate change. While the need to continue to advance our knowledge and monitor global change remains paramount, Earth observation has entered a new era where it is playing a key role in a myriad of everyday applications to improve daily lives and is also becoming increasingly relevant for the competitive business sector.

The event will not only see scientists present their latest findings on Earth’s environment and climate derived from satellite data, but will also focus on Earth observation’s role in building a sustainable future and a resilient society. Participants will also be able to explore how emerging technologies are revolutionising the use of Earth observation and how business and the economy can benefit from this new epoch.

    The Symposium is a unique gathering of the EO community – everyone was there! The EO4GEO Side Event on Friday morning attracted more than 40 participants, among them experts from user organisations and institutions from outside Europe such as INPE (BR) and SANSA (SA). The discussions in the break-out groups revealed great interest about skills development and the objectives of the Copernicus Academy. The event initiated an international collaboration on skills development for the GI/EO sector and cross-comparison of available occupational profiles. Another milestone achieved.
