Living Planet Symposium 2019
The 2019 Living Planet Symposium is held every three years, and this year will take place on 13–17 May in Milan, Italy. The Symposium is organised with the support of the Italian Space Agency. 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.
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.
There is a special session focussed on the remote detection of marine litter: “Current and Potential Multisensor approaches to Marine Litter Detection” on the 14th May (See the programme of the event here).
