GEO Plenary and Ministerial Summit

Monday, November 6, 2023 to Friday, November 10, 2023

There is more data than ever before on our changing Earth.The problem is that many people can’t get hold of it, and when they can, it’s in a language they don’t understand. On this ocasion, GEO is coming together at the Cape Town Ministerial Summit to shape our future and respond to the Earth’s calls for action. Join us for a conversation about how to take the best Earth observation data, technology and science and translate it into free, trusted information that makes sense to everyone. CREAF's participation is very wide-ranging, as described below:

06 Nov. 11:00 to 11:10 - Flash talk: In-situ observations requirements database as a tool to search for data that fits the needs of the GEO initiativesWorkshop - Joan Masó (CREAF), Alba Brobia (CREAF).
