GEO Virtual Symposium 2020

The Group on Earth Observation (GEO) will hold interactive webinars and virtual discussions in the GEO Virtual Symposium 2020.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, GEO has announced an event to be held remotely on 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. 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 encourage interactive participation from attendees. Details on session timing and registration are here.

The World Data System of the International Science Council is a Participating Organization of GEO, and will be represented at the Virtual Symposium by Rorie Edmunds (WDS Acting Executive Director).
