Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Week 2019

The 2019 Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Week will be held in Canberra in November. GEO is an intergovernmental partnership of 105 member governments, 127 participating organisations, and thousands of individuals and businesses aiming to improve the availability, access, and use of Earth observations for a more sustainable planet. In November, ministers from GEO member governments, business leaders, heads of international non-profit organisations, and technical experts will meet in Canberra for GEO Week 2019, the GEO Ministerial Summit, and GEO side events.

As part of GEO week, GEO Blue Planet have arranged a side event ‘The Role of the Group on Earth Observations in the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030)’ – to be held on Tuesday 5th November. This session is well timed to occur shortly after OceanObs19, and provides an opportunity for the GEO community to identify actions to support decision-making regarding ocean management.
