EVENT: ESA's 2022 Living Planet Symposium

World's largest Earth observation event, which is held every three years, will take place on 23–27 May 2022 in Bonn, Germany. Register by 9 May 2022.

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 next symposium is being held at the World Conference Center, in Bonn, Germany on 23–27 May 2022. The Living Planet Symposium 2022 promises to be bigger and wider ranging than ever before. 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.

 

REGISTRATION

The registration for the Living Planet Symposium 2022 is open until 9 May 2022 at this link

The registration fees for the conference are:

  • Regular Participants: €75
  • Student Participants: €25

All participants are required to finance their own travel and accommodation.

Please note that the registration fee and the abstract fee are to be considered two separate costs. The abstract fee is an abstract processing fee that does not include your participation in the Symposium. The registration fee is related to your attendance to the event and needs to be paid in order to access the venue premises.

 

OBJECTIVES

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 PARTNERSHIPS
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.
